Keep a close eye on the weather! You don't want to be in a tornado in an RV! If there's a tornado warning, get out of the rig and head for the nearest tornado shelter. It would be good to locate a shelter near the CG where you will be staying.

A weather radio only helps if it is on 24/7/365. I purchased one that I could wire directly into my housebank and run off 12v. It is a Midland 74-200, which I believe is not made anymore. Mine has been on for 11 years now.

As previously mentioned, alerts are given by county. So when traveling in tornado alley, that is one item you need to stay abreast of. Having a few minutes warning, with a plan in place beforehand, can make a huge difference in the outcome.

When your life revolves around watching for those things that just, just MIGHT happen is it really much of a life???? Yes use common sense but come on. Our Daughter and family live just 5 miles from Mayflower and near Vilonia AR. Did we worry??? No. Why worry when you can only use your common sense if it hits you. You can not control mother nature. If it's coming my way would I leave or stay put. Again use your common sense. We've lived in tornado alley most of our lives and we don't worry or fret. What will be will be. I won't say, "If it's your time it's your time." I don't believe that. Life is about free will and making choices and I try to use the common sense that God gave me.

There's to much weather technology available for the worry crowd. I won't have a weather alert system telling me there's a storm 30 miles away and south of me so I should take cover. It ain't gonna hit me if it's south of me and heading away. But the weather alert system just keeps on keeping on about everything bad thing out there. G*D forbid if they ever determine that they can identify ghosts with those systems so they can tell us when the ghosts are heading our way. There's a crown out there who'd buy the dumb things.


Happy trails,
This whole post is just plain silly. Tell that to the folks in Arkansas and Mississippi that just lost their homes, or the 16 people that lost their lives yesterday. Taking such a casual attitude for most people is like playing Russian Roulette.

Weather radios are a great help. Keeping an eye on the weather channel can help. Yes common sense is needed as well. But telling people what you are saying is foolish and can get people hurt or worse!
