For those RV'ers in Louisiana

For our fellow RV'ers effected by the tornado that tore through the Sugar Hill RV Park in Convent Louisiana, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

We think we know someone that was staying in that area, haven't heard from them yet. I put off my travels on i-95 today due to the weather, not worth the risks.

I'm in Savannah and sure was watching that storm on radar coming our way. We only got a couple of overnight showers because the storm went north of us. Leaving for our AZ home in the morning and getting away from tornado alley. Three weeks ago we were in Pennsacola when an overnight storm tore up LA and MS. We were on the road very early to try and outrun it. We did.

We are in Southern MD, the county sirens went off this evening and the whole park emptied to the shelter at the front office. They were quick to have the office open, even ran from door to door banging on folks' doors to warn them.

They learned from a bad storm a couple of years ago that hit the Cherry Hill park in College Park. That one flipped several trailers and people got hurt.

Glad to hear they were being proactive. When we chose a campground that is one thing that I always take a look for, storm shelters. In many parks the bath houses have been reinforced. In others, there is nothing.

We too look for what type of shelters are available in the campgrounds. We also travel with a weather radio. When my family started camping we first rented a pop-up to see if the kids would enjoy going camping. However after one night in a severe t-storm in Texas, we decided that we wanted solid walls around us.
