Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Pouring rain, thunder booming, warning of possible damaging wind. Beautiful earlier today other than kinda hot, upper 90's. We had a little adventure on Monday, though. Packed up the tent and went to go camping at a resort just southeast of Battle Creek. By the time we got there, things looked threatening enough that we took a lodge room instead of tenting. Just as well. We were in the indoor pool in mid afternoon when we got a tornado warning. Everyone got into the clubhouse johns, and we listened to a few minutes of nice loud roar.
No one hurt, and little or no damage to the clubhouse, but trees uprooted or snapped off all over the grounds including within a few feet of the clubhouse, tents ripped up, at least one camper turned over. Taped off areas with power lines down in a snarl. The weather on Monday was beautiful, but we had to find our way into the lodge and around in our room with a flashlight after dark.
