We kind of missed each other last weekend. We could have fried some fresh out of the lake. Hopefully we can get together sometime this summer and fry some up then.

I guess you're about to find out how roomy that 5'er really is.

Stay safe and be ready to get to a shelter, such as the bathhouse, as quick as you can. Sometimes you have less than a minute's warning, so have a plan and be prepared.

Well......I guess we weren't as safe as we thought.....actually we're just damn lucky. They had a number of tornado's come through the area last night. One touched down only about 1 mile from the campground. Several homes and 3 lives lost (so far) in Gloucester Va. We drove through the carnage on our way home this afternoon. Looking back I think we heard it. I played it off as thunder but my wife was convinced it was something else. It was a rumble sound but lasted about 10 seconds then about a minute later it did it again for about 5 seconds.

Good to hear you made it home alright.
My prayers go out for those lost in ths storm and their families.

When those type of storms move through here we usually continue doing things as usual, but we always have the TV or radio on and watch or listen to the weather reports. I also have a weather alert radio that I take with us when camping. This time of year a day can be perfect and then before you know it.....

If your campground doesn't have a storm shelter then use the next best thing, such as the bathhouse. Anything is better than an RV. If you have kids, make sure they know the plan.

Here's a link to a thread by fellow FRF member Radio. It has some good info;
Tornado Preparedness - You might wanna read this...

Good luck and happy camping.

Yea, tornado's aren't something we normally worry about around here. Hurricanes are our thing. No early warning sirens or anything like it that I know of. We followed the whole storm on the news and knew our half of the state was in a tornado watch/warning. Definitely something I'll be more conscious of/take more seriously of in the future.
