Water Level Going Down - April 15....tax day

Today is April 15...and you can see that the water level is going down around the bench in Schultz Park. It looks to have dropped a couple of feet since my last photo of the bench.
Rumors continue to circulate that Paducah is flooded. They are just that - rumors. Paducah is dry and the flood gates have not needed to be installed at all this year.
Did you know that Paducah has 12 miles of flood walls to protect the city from flood waters? The city watches the water levels very carefully so the gates can be installed in necessary. Thankfully, this year they have not been needed.
See you all at the quilt show next week.
