Rains and flooding. Show still going on but some things moved.
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Wow, they must be nervous about it.
Wow is right.
Those are huge changes to have to make at the last minute.
Yes - I live in Paducah and the flooding is pretty bad now and expected to get worse. In addition, some forecasts call for 10-12 inches of rain in the next week
So sorry about the bad weather, but what a great place to be living when it is time for the quilt show.Originally Posted by Vetmom
WOW! I hope that the forecasters are wrong!
Should we bring hip boots?Originally Posted by Vetmom
Actually I havent ever been to the quilt show - I know, hard to believe out of a quilter! Would be glad to help with ideas on good restaurants, etc. to go to.
I talked to my mom who is down there now and she said they are putting the flood gates in today. I really hope the water stays down and doesn't mess with anything. Fingers crossed!!
I just talked to my aunt who lives in Metropolis, Illinois (across the river from Paducah). She said the water is up over the banks and into the outskirts of town. I think she said Second Street. This would mean the hotels by the river may not be open.
