Secure the BBQ cover or it will end up like mine, in the pool! Yes, we have gusty wind so be sure to "batten down the hatches" as-in store your chair cushions indoors or best sure to tie them in place. I added some fairly large rocks around the top of my potted plants to weight them down after the wind blew them over! Then there was the day I stupidly put my Vente Starbucks on the patio table and can you guess what happened? LOL! I'll never do that again!
