Wow what a night, I thought we were doing a remake of the Wizard of Oz.
Bout 11 pm the wind started blowing, the trailer was rocking ( no, not that ) it must have been 60 mph winds to move my trailer like it did. At 12:59 am lightening and thunder hit at the same time, Vicki screemed, I jumped,.
My first though was I'm still in bed so we didn't get blown over. It actually felt like another trailer got blown into the back of us.

A immediate calm followed. I got up and looked outside, just a sprinkle of rain, no wind, and the park didn't look like a camping junkyard.

Glad I wasn't in a tent.

Bill

On edit, weather report said 70 mph winds.

Good new! No wanted posters, a cool wall inside though.

I'm always on my best behaviour Bill.

Anyone you'd run into along I44 will have good things to say. Be careful going through St. Louis. Nice thing about pulling a trailer through there though is all you have to do is wag it back and forth a little and most people give you plenty of room, always works for me anyhow.

Did you "fall" upon that Bill, or was it part of your amazing plan?

Thought about it this am, and during the 9.5 hour drive. I need to check the place out, I want to be sure Jim won't get scratches on his frame, calipers, or tub. When he comes here.

All three of the big Magazines have been here and gave good reviews
