Watching the radar as these storms develop to the west has not been comforting.
A lot will depend on from what direction the storms come.
We have been told since the day we got here that if the storms track in a way the wind comes down the river, between the hills, we had better hang on!
Today the campground manager reviewed the shelter we are to go to should it get so bad we need to abandon our RV.
She also shared with us the strongest part of the building to go to.
While the storms may never get that bad it is nice to know that they take the precaution of letting everyone know the options.
So we wait to see what Mother Nature has in store for us over the next 24 hours.
The idea of bad weather seems to take on a greater significance when you are sitting in a motorhome and exposed to the potential winds that can come.
While in our house we watched the weather but felt much more secure with all the bricks and mortar around us.
We have the motorhome ready to raise the jacks in the event we see high winds.
Due to the ground we are on we have our rear jacks fully extended.
If we were to see high winds the potential for side loading of the Jacks is a potential and not a good thing for jacks.
So I would lower the motorhome to a point where the jacks are barely touching but still providing support.
We will not be level and I just need to make sure that I am uphill of Nanette so she doesn't roll over me!
Today I took it easy and recovered from my illness.
I am feeling much better now. I am glad to get it over with before we hit the road in about a week.
Next week I have my last doctor's appointment for a while. That is the last thing on my list.
Nanette informed me that she has completed everything on her super-secret list.
She beat me again! Must be a woman thing.
We learned about awning clamps or locks today.
It seems awnings can unfurl on you while going down the road under certain conditions.
Kind of sounds like a good idea.
Does anyone one use these or think we should?
This is my first post at the new time so some of you may need to scroll down to see the post from this morning.
Well we will write you from the other side of the severe weather!
Thank you all so much for visiting our blog!
We look forward to having you follow along our next phase - it should be quite a ride!
Ken and Nanette
