This Storm Ruined My Outdoor Curtains!

When I was coming home the other day from running an errand, I noticed something was off. Then I realized that I didn't see my curtains that grace the end of my balcony with their presence.

Remember how proud I was to reveal my outdoor room this summer? Not really? Okay, here's a reminder.
Well, one of my favorite parts of the deck remodel is the gauzy curtains. Anywhooooo, as I walked up the path toward my house the other day, I noticed that the curtains were gone. I looked all over the ground to see if they'd blown off and couldn't find them. Then I started stressing out.

But, then I looked up.
Good grief those suckers are gross and ugly now.

How the heck am I going to get those off the roof? Ha. Oh well, we'll find out pretty soon, I guess.

Oh bummer! yank them down and pray that they aren't ripped. Then see if the drycleaner can fix them.

EEK! We wanted to do that for our porch last summer but didn't get around to it (read: didn't have the extra money after buying furniture). Maybe this year... good luck with that. Enlist a tall friend with the payment of a 6 pack of beer and dinner! :)

Sad. I really want outdoor curtains because the rain POURS on to my front porch and I thought they might keep things a little drier. dryer? drier. However, I fear mud being flung up on them and then they would look all dingy and dirty. So I guess I am waiting until summer. Hope your curtains will survive.
