The red storm warning box and worrisome tornadoes bypassed us once again the other evening. The impending danger made some of the campers leave early, but most stuck it out. We had heavy rain and more thunder and lightning, but no heavy wind and the storm moved through quickly.
Yesterday, as expected, the camping masses left for parts unknown to return to their day jobs and/or school. We are left once again in peace and quiet with probably a total of 12 rigs in the park. What an amazing change that is in just a few short hours. It was almost like the holiday weekend didn't really happen. Was it all just a dream? It really is fun to watch everyone pack everything up and load the kids and dogs into the truck and head for the road. John mutters nanner, nanner to himself as they all leave.
Today, as also promised by the weather guessers, it is hot and extremely humid. We dodged the heat bullet yesterday as the coolness of the coast kept it at bay. But this morning, John turned on the AC before I got out of bed and it was hot and sticky at daylight. From watching the Weather Channel, I surmise that the reason for the tornado warnings is the clash between the cold fronts to the north and the warmth coming up from the south. Today, the tornado warnings are in Minnesota but they are supposed to move over Michigan tomorrow.
We will move inland tomorrow, towards the western side of Michigan. People keep telling us how beautiful the other side of Michigan is so we are excited to explore it. This east coast is not too exciting but the peace and quiet has been nice. And we will take a cold, grey day any day over a hot and humid one where all we feel like doing is staying inside with the AC on.
