Do you look to the sky when a cloud passes in front of a hot summer sun? Most people think ah some shade. That cloud can be friend or foe depending if you are prepared or not for what it might bring. The Ozarks can produce some pretty intense thunderstorms and down bursts in the peek heat of the summer. A welcome break from the heat for sure when its 98 degrees ,but not so cool if you got no where to stay dry and your rainproof tent becomes an indoor swimming pool.
