Storms at Camp ~ Life at Camp Photostory

(I didn’t have all my supplies with me to blog, so forgive the photo quality please)

Cloud glanced out the window.

“It’s still raining!” he pouted.

It didn’t rain a whole lot at Camp Happy Heart, but whenever it rained like this, events got cancelled. Today’s event was a nature hike, which I was really looking forward too.

“Oh well,” I sighed, slumping on the floor of our cabin. “We might as well try and make the best of it.”

“Why don’t you tell the story of that one storm?” Cloud suggested.

“That one storm…” I replied. “Yeah, you’re going to need to be more specific.”

“Remember?” my pesky brother insisted. “When we were camping?”

“Oh!” I suddenly remembered what Cloud was talking about. “That’s not a bad idea.”

“One weekend, Daddy decided to take us camping. However, none of us checked the weather before we left. So, we packed our stuff like usual and went on our way.”

“We drove to our camping location and set up our tent. The ground was rocky, but we pounded at those stakes as best as we could. Anyway, we did our usual camping stuff like fishing and hiking. It was a pretty uneventful trip. The end.”

“You haven’t gotten to the good part yet!” Cloud whined.

“I know,” I replied. “I’m only messing with you. So, on the second day of our trip, we noticed the weather was getting kind of rainy. My dad is tough, so he decided that we would just wait it out.”

Cloud chuckled.

“Well, this was no ordinary storm. It was a terrible thunderstorm. The winds and rains were brutal. When the lightning started, Daddy finally agreed to wait it out in the car. We sat in the car, safe, but soaking wet. We watched the storm as it blew away our tent!”

Everyone gasped. Cloud chuckled again.

“Daddy was angry after that. Camping gear isn’t cheap you know. Luckily, only our sleeping bags were in the tent, so we didn’t have to replace too much.”

“The moral of the story, is to always, always check the weather,” Cloud added.

My cabinmates had a good laugh over our story. We took turns sharing more funny stories, and before we knew it, the storm was over.

  1. Thunderstorms, in the middle of the night, in the mountains are the worst. Rainy-day activities are the best though. especially with a good story!
