I can agree with all of u ,, 4 yrs ago we went down to Myrtle Beach in July ,, and had great weather for a day ,, then tropical storm Barry decided to hit the area ,, and at high tide ,, they lost power in the park ,, and trees down infront of the entrance to the rv resort ,, we ran on genny power for a day ,, but the thing that gets me is ,, (1) the coastal areas get this stuff all the time ,, yet trees and such fall ,, plus if u really think about it ,, there was enough power in the rvs at that resort to restore power to half of the area via all the gennys that were running

Now that's something well said you are 100% right and that is great advice to give someone not like some comedians want to be with none sense jokes, I know that we can't control the weather but I work so hard and so many hours and I only get to do this a couple times a year that it sucks not to have nice weather and I know that it's still nice to camp and spend quality time with my family but it would be better if it was nicer weather and also the last trip that we toke was to Virginia and we were supposed to stay for nine days but after the third day we had to pack up and leave it rained for five days straight that's also why I'm saying this because it's the second time back to back (about five months a part) joe

I can't imagine too many people actually pack up to go camping in the rain (unless they're loonies and I imagine there are a few out there to be found?). Anyway, get it out your system and enjoy the time you have with the people you're with. Remember, no one guarantees that we'll get a tomorrow. We're just lucky to wake up and be thankful for the gift of another day. Remember, good or bad, you're making memories - it's up to you which way they'll go!

Me, I'm wishing I were out there somewhere. Haven't camped in over a month and no dates scheduled any time soon - too many things going on that won't allow us to get away. Now THAT sucks! So, I sit here and enjoy hearing about everyone else's adventure until it's our turn to get out there again

Ya, although it's raining out I'm going 4 hrs away (through the rain) to buy a 38" K-Z toy hauler! It will be a grand day no matter what the weather is!

Aw come on folks. Don't be so hard on ninos. I don't see a lot of whining in the original post. A simple observation and and a wish for better weather. Why ninos even considered contacting, visiting with (?) other folks from the forum. Had we not had company we would have invited ninos and crew over for dinner and Sea Stories.

But. Now the sun is shining here. A little chilly but its warming up. I don't see a post from ninos this morning so I imagine ninos and crew are out and about.

Time to load em up and move em out.

SteveCal and crew. Time travelers in The Slow Lane.

Yeah. Really sorry about that wind. I didn't order that. Geeze. Poor little hummingbirds were having a real go of it trying to hover at the feeders for while.

Well, if you don't like the weather where you are, come to Texas.

If you don't like the weather in Texas you only have to wait five minutes for it to change.

I bet that bookstore was Powell's.....

Around here we've had snow instead of rain. It didn't accumulate, but the highs were in the 30's. In March we had summer, now we're having winter, again. They had 6" of snow about 60 miles to the north.

I like to think that I can control a lot of things. I learned a long time ago that unfortunately, weather isn't one of them. So we have the attitude of "grin and bear it." I've been in all sorts of weather - canoe camping in canada with 13 straight days of rain. Setting up camp in October in wisconsin and it was 94 degrees on Sunday. On Monday it was 40. Lake Havasu, Arizona in February and I had to buy a winter coat. Florida in March and it was in the 40's. Arizona baseball spring training and it snowed on us when we went to Sedona. June 9th in the Black Hills and it snowed 7 inches. Camping in a tent when the temps during the day were in the high 90's and the temps at night got no cooler than 75 (I'll take the cold any day over this!)

It is what it is - you have to learn to make the most of it. Otherwise you'll just sit around moping and complaining. Heck, I've golfed in long underwear and gloves when the temperature is 40 with a howling wind. But then again, I'm a born and bred Wisconsin girl who can take any weather mother nature dishes out. Just put another log on the fire and ride it out. Beats the alternative.
