When I lived in a sticks-and-bricks home, the weather was irrelevant. Unless I planned on heading into town or doing something outdoorsy, it didn’t matter. A whole storm could be happening outside in my Atlanta home and I would have no idea. In an RV, the opposite is true. Weather always matters and you always know exactly how hot, cold, windy, or rainy it is outside.
On this particular day, my friends and I saw a warning in our weather apps that it might rain. The warning came at the last minute, after more than a week of planning our get-together at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. In the desert, it rarely rains, even when the news says it well, so we didn’t take it seriously.
Well … it didn’t just rain; it poured. This video shows how the change in weather ruined my best preparations and how we managed to salvage it and have a good playdate anyway.

desert storms blow up so very fast. i have been in several long before i had a smartphone and had to watch the sky. one minute the sky is nice. the next a full on storm! lol i still have to chuckle at the fire the “boys” made.
The desert storms in California were quick. This one took some time to build, but we thought it was crying wolf. We were totally wrong!
