April has brought the usual storms to OK. We had a couple of weekends planned but decided to forgo them due to extreme weather forecasts. Sadly there were several tornados in our area and some large hail with wind. We did not have damage in our town but there was damage just North of us. What do you do on the road when you become aware of inclimate weather - do most campgrounds have shelters?

Thanks Marty SQ - There was good info there - hadn't thought of the showers at CG's during a storm. Main thing is just use common sense and best judgement I guess. When the weather is good here, it is perfect RV weather but you never know what is going to blow up when the sun goes down. Judgement call - do I leave it at home and hope it doesn't blow away, get beat up with hail. or etc.... or do I go somewhere and it get blown away, get beat up with hail, or etc - with me in it. Guess sometimes you just gotta take a chance.

When on the road we try to stay tuned to the area's that we plan to pass thru. If things are not shaping up in our favor we'll just sit a day or whatever it takes before we move on. I know the park we're in now has no shelters outside of the clubhouse but can't say how well that may hold up in a tornado. Don't know of many that do hold up though. Best place would be underground for sure.
