|Memorial Day Skies|
Unfortunately, early this morning there was a major change that had been predicted. All hell broke loose over the skies here in Culvert City, KY and the lightning started flashing in the night air followed by loud thunder. Soon there was what sounded like hail hitting the trailer. We sprang from bed to make certain none of the windows and vents that can leak were open. We closed most of the windows and went back to bed. The event continued from most of the early morning hours, drenching us with a lot of water and the lightning and thunder got closer and closer until it finally moved off to the east. From the sounds of the weather reports for the area we can expect more of the same throughout the region this morning thru tomorrow evening. So it appears we will be trailer bound today unless we decide to go for a ride like we did yesterday.
We left the trailer and headed up Highway 62 thru the Kentucky Lake State Park and out to Grand Rivers. It is a cute little town where Patti's 1880 Settlement has its home. Patti's is a tourist destination with shops, restaurants and a reconstructed fort. We drove past it on the way into this quaint little town that was obviously having a celebration complete with a parade. Most of the towns around here line their streets with the U.S. Flag.
I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day and you take time to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice so we can enjoy our freedom to have a celebration. Since the founding of the country, good men and women and given their lives to protect those of us who have followed. Enjoy your families and remember to thank those who served.
