Bill and Gayle 36 years

bill and gayle wedding day  Bill and Gayle at Silver Circle 2013 It’s my 36th wedding anniversary today (4/22). The weather that day was perfect…mostly sunny, low-mid 60s, light SE wind. Today Gayle and I are on our way home from visiting my mother in Tennessee. We’re at the Microtel in Dry Ridge KY. We stopped to see Cumberland Falls on Monday…125 feet across and 68-feet down – the most significant waterfall south of Niagara and east of the Mississippi. The flow on the river varies considerably. The record low flow is just 4 cubic feet per second…not much more than a trickle. The biggest flow was over 59,000 cubic feet per second. Compare that to the Grand River flood of 2013, which peaked at 35,100 cfs. The Great Flood of 1904 on the Grand River was 54,000 cfs. We’ll drive home today (Tue.) and it’s back to work on Weds. The weather’s been perfect for our trip…it was in the 70s and sunny and past two days in Oak Ridge. The leaves are about 60% out in Oak Ridge, maybe only 10% here in N. Kentucky.
