    I went through a storm, many moons ago, with similar results. Thankfully I had brought my weather radio with me and had enough time to get to a shelter before the storm hit. There was hail, high wind and flash flooding. I don't envy your experience. You sure do have a story to tell for quite a while.

    Is that a tree coming down on the family tent? Scary.

    Oh wow. I am glad you told us in the other post that no one was hurt. Had a big limb fall out of a tree on my last ground dwelling trip and it was sticking straight up in the ground 15 ft from the tent when I woke up the next morning. Scary stuff if you are in a tent or hammock I guess.

    It would be just my luck to finally talk the whole family into camping together, only to have something like this scare them into never wanting to ever do it again. I only hope this family takes it as adventure and not the norm.

    Thanks for the pics!
