Louisville Part 6

The weather has finally turned a corner it seems. Yesterday morning was in the 40s and I wore my raincoat with wool liner to the office. By evening I went for a walk wearing a skirt and sleeveless top and was just comfortable. Those who know me well know this means it was quite warm out! Today was about the same and temps in the 70s are predicted for the upcoming week. Too bad they are also predicting rain – been so much flooding here already this spring.

This coming Saturday, the 12th, is an event called “Thunder Over Louisville”. It will kick off the Derby festival season. There will be an air show during the day and a huge fireworks display at night. Stores all over the downtown area will be closing early or not opening at all that day. And since the 2nd Street bridge will host some of the fireworks, it will be closed at least part of the day as well.

In case you’d like to know more, here are some links to what’s going on here:

Peace to all,

Rock on, can not wait to see photos of the crazy activities (maybe even some fireworks?)

I will try to get out to some of those sites but really I am counting on you as my current L'ville tour guide :~)
