Saw the _High Winds_ in the topic and had to read...
1st...As a San Fransisco Bay Area child-of-the-60's i will state for the record i would rather go through an earthquake any day than live anywhere near Tornado Alley. My psych is not set up for witnessing a funnel cloud
coming down from cloud
cover! Even the rare F0 water spout we've had here freaks me out.
That said... This is a picture of our 38ft mobile suite, our _home_ with our Parkliner
parked next to it. . .
Fortunately, the designer of the RV/Golf Resort had the good mind to situate the sites into the most common prevailing winds/storms (from the South/SW). I've lived on the Oregon Coast for 20+ years and rub elbows with tourists all the time. The "Snowbirds" i've spoken to tell me mater of factually they would rather go through a storm in Florida anytime rather than face one of our "Winter Storms". A typical storm here (any time of the year) can have freak sustained winds of ~45 to 55mph and up to even 70mph sustained...with recorded gusts up to 115mph at the NOAA weather station ~1.5 miles from the resort.
Let me say this about that! The first time my wife and i went through one of those storms in the 14ft high ~18,000lb Mobile Suite 5th wheel it was SCAREY to the point of wondering if you were gonna get through the night in one piece. NOW? Sheesh, we just let the winds rock us to sleep. We figure if it can stay in one place in ~100mph+ gusts...it's pretty much gonna stay put!
I'm not sure what the little guy will think of those high winds the next storm, time will tell. We can park the van conversion (~6" taller than PL) in front of them to get hit by the brunt of the storm...and will do so just cuz we can. Don't want to put the lil'guy through needless stress.
