Almost to camp transmission light comes on
Get to the gate and storm chasers are parked there
Get to camp and water ran a foot deep through the cabin and all my firewood gone
Grab bow Instead of AR walk 100 yards three pigs feeding get to 20 yards draw and suddenly remembered I didn't fix the peep on this bow
Let down twist peep hogs leave
Get to twenty again draw arrow falls off from letting down the first time
Fall in water fill up boots
Get to feeder coon feeding draw bow grass too tall coon leaves
Get in stand wasp falls in my boot
Kick all four walls off the stand scream like a girl
Light thermacell and its a doe in estrus pad on it, likely will be raped by something now
Owl lands on top of stand, evacuate bowls
Roof just started leaking but hell my boots are full anyway so who cares
Thermacell quit just got west Nile
Warning on phone says flash flood and tornado so I can drown or go out in flying debri

How's yall's night?

I don't drink but I got trouble here. I got a 16' camper a Land Cruiser a flooded cabin and a deer stand and it's getting rowdy and I'm a long ways from anywhere. This will be fun, maybe the coyotes won't eat me before somebody finds my body.

Get around the most pipes you can find in the cabin. Tub is the best. Hopefully there's plumbing. Mattress over you if you've got one. Stay safe.

No pipes and only an air mattress. I'm in the woods now not sure I can make it to the cabin now there's a lot of water and wind. That brings up a good question. In this situation are you safer in a stand that's about to blow over or hugging a big tree and hope for the best.

Post the GPS location of your front gate so we will know where to find you...or your gear. That is what you would want, right?

I would think on a tarp in a ditch. Lowest you can get in the lowest spot you can find. (Not in a waterway of course.)

Yeah, tie your gear to a tree right quick.

I'm right in the middle of that big red dot on your radar near jacksboro. The bow will be clenched in my hand and y'all can have this doe estrus thermacell. I'm joking but this really is sucking bad, I'll plan better next time if a tree don't fall on me.

I would get out of that stand and take my chances in the Land Cruiser.

Radar doesn't show a tornado, or warning, but strait line winds can be as bad, may be better of under the truck

Getting colder and windier. It's about a mile to the truck but I got in a ground blind so at least if it blows over I won't have far to fall. I'm gonna do some testing on the affects of tornadic activity on arrows soon so I'll get back with the results.

Well, we turn in early here, so I'll bid you a good night. Stay dry. Stay alive. And kill something in the morning.

Only yellow spots in jack Co. Looks like you have maybe 20-30 minutes before you get more rain
