The weather forecast looks like highs in the 50s and 60s....lows in the mid 40s....but with rain.

On the whole....it sounds much better than freezing!

Safe travels to everyone.

For this time of the year 50-60 degrees is good. Have had a few white knuckle trips over the years for this show. Driving over from Illinois on Wednesday. See everyone there.

I'm glad it'll be milder weather compared to a few years ago! I don't mind a bit of rain, I live on the west coast just north of Seattle! ☔️See you all there!

I think I'd rather have snow than a rising river...sucks to be folks who have to head north during the show...

Never thought of that, I live in a tsunami and earthquake zone, rising rivers rarely come to mind....I hope everyone has a safe journey to and from the show!

Sadly I will not be going, haven't been yet either. Even though my home state of Virginia borders Kentucky it is still a 9 and a half hour drive, so I will be at home waiting to see what everyone ends up buying! Maybe next year!

Rain or shine, I caution everyone to bring plenty of suit bags or duffle bags for any uniforms they might pick up!

Bob you might to try big boy pants this year, been kind of a real mid-western winter back here...Be looking for you George

I have seen Bob in shorts in much colder weather than what they are forecasting. Honestly, I think he sees it as more of a challenge than a fashion statement. If they said the show was in International Falls, MN in January, he'd still wear them. :)
