The Great Flood of 1937
Big rain hit our area yesterday--and it's still falling today. The picture above--from 1937-- is of the Alhambra Theatre, now a part of the Evansville Arts District,which is just down the street from Penny Lane and just a few blocks off the Ohio River. Thank goodness we now have levys and dams and spillways, or we'd certainly be under water today. Our town is under a "state of emergency" and local schools are closed. I should have no problems getting to work, but in some parts of the city many streets are blocked off due to the high water. Weird weather strikes us all once again.
