Frog strangling tornado watch mess of a storm came thru as we were getting 2 campers parked. We abandoned one in the road to seek the bathhouse to wait out the watch (or is it warning?).
Looks like a good excuse to buy a blow up boat/canoe and have more fun.

I should get a set of those for my house and put them on without the DW knowing it. Might start some intelligent dialog. LOL...

Quite right! A lot of large Class As there (some Prevost with FIVE air conditioners), but this was by far the biggest rig.

People often forget that campgrounds often use septic systems and when flooding like that occurs it's not necessarily water you want to wade in unless you have good boots and a way to "decontaminate".

Also, if they are on a well, how contaminated did the well get?

As for plugging in while standing in the water, I've seen some outlets I wouldn't plug into if it was bone dry and I was standing on a piece of plywood supported by a bunch of water glasses (for insulation). First hint is the "neighbors" plug that is attached to the receptical that's either fallen into the box or is hanging out on three wires.

For you ALCAN travelers if wild looking electrical and questionable water bother you then steer clear of the Pink Mountain B.C. RV campground. They have a nice ad in the Milepost but a pretty shabby setup.

Putting the awning out must be a bear as well.
