Glad no one was injured.

Interesting that the blame was placed on "RVs not being tied down".
Funny...6 Actual and I were talking about this on the way to work this morning after hearing the report. (Seriously this DID happen!)

6A: too bad about the RVs guess they got blindsided by the storm.

Me: Yeah, I think we woulda bugged out if I saw that storm on our iPad!

6A: Yah...wonder what we would do if we got trapped like that?

Me: Hmmm .. *Snark* Bet OC could design a 4 point frame-based tiedown in a afternon over a couple of beers, fabricate it and have it installed the next day!

Over to you OC

This sucks.
The weather report for yesterday here was about 35mph winds. The awning poles held up and the awning is just fine. Ironically, I read reports that the wind was supposed to get worse so when we saw a break in the rain and wind, we ran the awning in. Based on the wind reports, I'm positive that it saw the worst of the wind.

Thanks, OldCoot!
