|No rain here!|
The problem is that our family loves camping (our oldest doesn't like camping and considers us liking camping a problem of a different sort). Our last camping trip was last fall, so when spring came, we've eagerly anticipated our first chance to go - anywhere!. We got our pop-up camper back from its winter storage, eager for a weekend trip.
The first weekend our pop-up was ready, the weather wasn't so good, and Darling Daughter wasn't feeling well anyway. That's OK, we have next week.
Once we made plans, the forecasts started changing. Rain is creeping into the weekend outlook! We've had rain before. We can deal with that. As the weekend approached, the chances of rain went up and down not unlike the stock market. We implemented one of our plans: checking different parks through the state and picking the region with the best weather forecast. We chose Indiana Dunes because conditions looked most promising. Additionally with the Dunes are in my home county, we could also have dinner with my mom and wish her a happy Mother's Day a week early.
My productivity at work suffered as the week wrapped up because I continually monitored www.accuweather.com, weather.com, noaa.gov, and wgntv.com. Looking too iffy. This is relaxing?
We left first thing Saturday morning. From the moment we arrived until time to leave Sunday after lunch, we had a near-perfect early May weekend. We did leave early when we saw thunderstorms on the radar. Smart phones with weather apps - how did we get by without them?

|Another Happy Camper!|
