The shots we have been enjoying the past three days all came from one busy morning/afternoon near the show registration and photography area. As with past years Thursday seemed to be the peak day of madness with trucks of all types, sizes and ages crashing through the gates. If you are making plans for the national show next year take note that the technically it will run Friday, Saturday, and Sunday which is major shift from years past. Does this mean Friday will become the beehive of activity day? Only time will tell.
As you can see by the final few photos storm clouds were starting to gather. I have never seen such a rapid shift in weather before…or at least I don’t recall one. Coming from placid upstate NY where the breeze typically blows west to east in a predicable fashion the weather in Kentucky seemed to approach from all directions at random. By the end of day I wound up getting soaked to the bone in another freak storm. I ended up jumping into the hotel pool to dry off.
