Unhappy R & V APPEARANCE CANCELLATIONS 8-10th

It is with our sincerest apologies to Bass Pro and to our fans
that Ralph & Vicki have to regretfully cancel their scheduled appearances
for this weekend, August 8-10, at the Bass Pro Classics in Mesa, AZ -
Las Vegas, NV - and Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

Cancellation is due to ongoing cleanup from a powerful storm system
that came through the area Monday evening producing tornadic type winds
that knocked down trees and knocked the power out.

Well that's a bummer! Hope everything is ok!

Turns out we couldn't make the Vegas run anyways so...

Hey if they need anything... Vicki has my cell # somewhere. I'll do what I can.

That storm blew through here about 30 minutes before it hit them. It was dark as night at 5:30pm. I've never seen it so dark....and the storm got worse after it passed by us.

Just talked to Vic y'all
They are doing fine, but sounds like a heck of a clean-up ahead for them. I am sure that there will be photos and video somewhere.
Power is still down she said, but thankfully everyone was ok, and Ralph's truck is fine too, thanks to the BBB.

Hope everyone else is doing well around the country, seems like it has been a bizarre year for weather.

I stopped over today and was surprised to find them still without power. What a mess....big trees down everywhere.

Stories from that side of the county are starting to circulate and they really got nailed on the east side. I thought we had it bad.....but it is nothing compared to what I saw today.

Thank god everyone is alright.

Best wishes to all. Last week NH got it's first tornado ever documented. Over 120 homes damaged and one person killed. We now know what you all go through each year. Be safe.

I'm 41 years old and have been through a lot of storms. This one was about as bad as I've seen. I still can't get over how dark it got
