All that... for nothing!

We spent close to 3 hours of our day (yesterday), putting this _____ ___ _______ together. When all was assembled, which was no easy feat, it looked GREAT-- better than great, it looked AWESOME! We couldn't have been more pleased with how it turned out.  Too bad we couldn't enjoy it for long because the weather took a cold turn and we landed ourselves inside for the rest of the evening.   

Today, the view in back is much different. Thanks to the windy city and the 50mph winds we experienced today, there is no longer a canopy on the top of the gazebo.  The ______ ___ _______ ripped off.  

Not happy.  What a waste of time.  And now, in order to take it back, we have to tear the ______ ___ ______ down, box it up and crate it back to the store (open mouth, insert gun and pull trigger).  

Which puts us back to square one.  I suppose we'll just get a standard umbrella that sits in the center of our table. The dreams of a mosquito net surrounding a grandiose, lantern-lit gazebo under a starry sky just got shot to hell.
