May 16th was a beautiful 76 degree, sunshiny day in Kentucky. Paulette and I went to Hopkinsville for the cruise-in at K-Mart / Hardees's parking lot, put on by Pennyrile Classic Cars. We got there about 4:30 pm (it starts at 6 pm) when they start setting up the flagged area. By 5 p.m. the wind picked up (the kind that makes your flag stand straight out), the temp. dropped to 51 degrees and the black clouds rolled in.
While waiting to set up, cars from Madisonville (40 miles) and Paducah (75 miles) started to come in.
