Today we awoke to more rain. Periods of very heavy rain, interspersed with lighter rain, and cold temperatures were the order of the day. We didn't do a whole lot, and that was ok. The first day with no real plans.
We watched lots of sad news, as light revealed what damage had occurred with the tornadoes last night. It was much worse than anticipated, F-3 and F-4 tornadoes through an 8 mile stretch through Sunnyvale, Garland and Rowlett, all eastern suburbs of Dallas (very familiar stomping grounds for us), and other shorter ones around the area as well. Sadly, an RV Park in Sunnyvale, Plantation Place, took a direct hit, destroying up to 30 rigs there. Luckily, only 6 injuries and no deaths at the park. The death toll from the rare December tornados was 11, most in cars on the highway, when the tornado crossed over I-30 and the 190 Toll Road exchange.
There was also lots of flooding due to the torrential rains falling in East Texas, including parts of the Canton Trade Days facility.
About 4:30, the rain finally let up enough we could get the truck unhitched and finish our setup. Later that evening, we got out to go eat Mexican food here in town at Carmonas.
Nothing else to report!
