Lady Liberty waiting out Tuesday’s winds

Lady Liberty is OK – just taking a break from the breeze.

Some passersby at Gas Works Park Tuesday wondered why the inflated replica head of the Statue of Liberty, which was inflated Monday and which will will reign over the park’s Fourth of July activities, was deflated at midday Tuesday.

It’s not  for any nefarious reason, say the folks at One Reel, who organize the event.  It’s just that Tuesday’s gusty winds were making the piece a bit unstable.

Expect to see it back to full size after the winds abate.
