Selma is an old town and not prosperous looking. There was obvious sprucing up going on for the upcoming commemoration but lots that needs doing. It feels strange to visit a site that is certainly not a proud moment in our history, but yet contributed to change and needs to be remembered.
Back at the campground we had a couple of odd incidents. We were just leaving for a few groceries when a tornado siren went off to the west of us. A few minutes later, another sounded to the southeast. It was cloudy but didn't appear threatening. Since there's no one else in this loop, we couldn't ask about it until we got to the registration shack. They didn't know either. They said there was nothing on the radio. Then when we returned, we discovered the water hook up a few sites over from us seemed knocked at a slant and was shooting water twelve or thirteen feet in the air. Butch called the campground number; the guy who answered said he would check it out--that 'they' didn't like him reporting things that he hadn't seen with his own eyes. What, they have a lot of damage reports that are pranks?
