My camp contribution that year was a brand new carport shade to add to the 3 others for camp shade. Mine being on the windy end was threatening to become airborne, everyone hauled out of their hiding spots and hung (literally) on for dear life until extra ratchets in the tie downs could be done. We weren't so "lazy" that afternoon....

This was a vented parachute- the wind should have gone through it. This storm knocked down half of recycle camps dome (they were behind us), so I'm not sure what you would use to survive that one.

Oooh, but the dust storms were great in their own way. It was far more post-apocalyptic.
