Not a good yesterday in SW Arkansas

I got a call from a neighbor after lunch yesterday about a storm that came through my neighborhood yesterday. She didn't say a lot, but there was a keyword in there....your trailer....

Really glad no serious injuries happened.

Many years ago we were camping with in-laws along shoreline surrounded by trees. Bad storm overnight was whiping trees like blades of grass. Never knew about it cause I slept through it but it could have been bad for us if a tree snapped and dropped on the pop-up. Kinda gives me the willies now thinking back on it.

You got it.

We got part of that storm in NE Louisiana. The floods we had last month didn't do as much damage to me personally, as the rains last night did. I'm going to have to do some major driveway repair.
