As I watched the news media showing the New Jersey coast and upper east coast being hammered by Hurricane Sandy, my thoughts and prayers went out to all of the residents of that area, especially those living or traveling in motor homes, travel trailers and fifth wheels. It’s beyond anything most people have ever seen. Although people can easily drive out of harm’s way in a motorhome, those who may be living in a used travel trailer or fifth wheel may have been forced to leave their RV before the storm hit.
Having lived in Houston all my life, hurricanes have become a part of life for us. We start seeing checklists and tracking charts in late Spring and all of us have a stock of beanie weenies, tuna, bottled water and flashlight batteries. For our friends in the Northeast, a storm like Sandy is very unusual. In fact, the mix of snow, hurricane winds and floods seems hard to imagine, even for a native of hurricane country.
