LOL! Weather has only twice pushed me to a hotel, once because of a massive thunderstorm, and not enough dirt to properly secure my tent, the other time was because it was going down to -15C (5F).

But I've survived thunderstorms in Canvas military tents in the style of the 19th Century. Maybe I should bring the big wall tent :P
