[Ansteorra] Warlord

 Well warlord rain and storms have been a tradition since I started in the SCA. At the Burke - Burnett Lions club camp (Camp Burn Out) it always stormed there at least once during the event. I remember getting up to re-secure the stakes on my tent in a storm and seeing a sight that left me staring, jaw down, and rooted to the spot. There was this little earth pimple (dome tent) rolling across the list field, going roll - ker-thump, roll - ker-thump(ice chest or somebody in it)with three people chasing after it. So there seems to be a long standing tradition of storms and rain at Steppes Warlord.

Ask the people of Canton the same question:  They live in a flood-prone area,
yet they're content to stay there.  Why?

Down here in BG, we've got a creek that has some flood-prone areas, yet
people are content to live there despite the fact that it's flooded their homes on
occasion.  Why do they stay there?

I think it's because they've known that to be their home for their entire
lives, and flooding isn't about to drive them out.  They've got nowhere else to
go. (Ask a person who's lived all their lives in one place to suddenly up and
move to a new location.  That's a pretty tall order.  I imagine that the Feds
faced the same challenge when they created the TVA and their dams.)
