I got up early this morning because I had plans. A friend invited me to see her belly dance group perform as part of Labor Day festivities. I looked forward to seeing it, and I decided to begin a new feature story project on belly dancing in our town and the women--usually mid-life women--who do it. Perfect story for a video feature!
But this morning when I got my camera out, the battery was dead! So no video feature footage :-(
I sulked for a while, but figured I can still do the story. And I learned something: check your equipment BEFORE you plan to go out!
