My phone screamed at 7:00 this morning, signaling an emergency alert: Tornado watch in your area-take shelter now!
As the wind, buckets of rain, hail, thunder and lightening intensified, we circled each other in the trailer wondering what to do. Our truck was hitched up (in the hopes of getting an early morning start), but the trailer jacks were still down. We couldn’t safely unhitch in the increasingly stormy weather, and the office wouldn’t open for another two hours.
In an effort to calm me down, Reg poured coffee. We finally opted to sit in the truck. My thinking (however flawed) was, “If a tornado blows through the RV park, I want to at least have the security of a seatbelt and airbags.”
At 7:45 am, right on schedule, the weather began to calm down…and so did I! As the storm moved through, fellow RVers surveyed the damage. Not too bad, although a falling branch damaged a trailer hitch across the way. The storm is moving east and so are we, so we have opted for one more night here. Tomorrow is another day!
Oh, gosh! Yes, please give that storm a day’s head start on you. Hope the weather settles down now….
