On our last camping trip, my sons as well as I had a easily close encounter with a tornado. As the people I was with and I sat in the motel, with our air conditioner running, the people I was with and I heard an unusual noise. No sooner did the people I was with and I turn off the air conditioner as well as the television, but the people I was with and I lost our power. The motel had an emergency generator, but it only ran the lights as well as not the air conditioner; Every one of us just wanted to go home, by this time, but they said they weren’t allowing anyone on the roads until the tornado warning had passed. Half an hour later, the people I was with and I were given the go ahead to leave the area. It was almost afternoon light, as well as the people I was with and I made the decision to drive by the campground as well as option up our tent before the people I was with and I got home. Every one of us had everything packed in the truck from the night before, as well as the people I was with and I made to leave the motel. I couldn’t know the sight the people I was with and I saw when the people I was with and I walked out. A tornado had gone through the area as well as not a single hundred yards from our truck, the buildings were destroyed. Every one of us slowly made our way to the campground. The men had turned on the air conditioner in the truck because it was still easily humid as well as tepid as well as it was only 7 in the afternoon. They wouldn’t allow us in the campground, but I tried to explain that the people I was with and I had a campsite in there. He walked us back as well as right where our tent had been less than twelve hours earlier, there was nothing but an empty lot. The telephone poles were down, as well as our tent was up in a tree. Every one of us got back into our air conditioned truck, grateful for not being hurt from either tornado, as well as swearing off camping for the rest of my life.
