Miserable. Cool for this time of the year, not even 50F. We're also having severe rains, which have resulted in unprecedented flooding. Many areas are being evacuated and the U.S. Corps of Engineers is getting ready to blow a hole in a levy to relieve pressure on already flooded areas.

We've been getting 2-4 inches of rain a day for days and days. The flood gates were put into the floodwall in Paducah and, now, the water is about to go OVER the wall. They're beginning to evacuate downtown Paducah. The gazebo where Glenn and I were married will be under water.

It's a mess here and so sad.

Odd color in the sky, I think they call it, "Blue" and there is this really bright light, not sure what it is, much brighter than the Moon. 70F...wow...

I wondered where this went. Mid to upper 90s every day. NO breeze. Some rain showers with about 5 minutes of breeze. YUCK!
