Just got off a conference call with the National Weather Service in Paducah. Rick Shanklin, Paducah NWS Warning Coordinator, said that they are "really concerned" and that this storm could be the "winter storm event of the decade". Rick is a very level headed individual. Hearing these comments from him should add extra importance to the warnings.
The NWS in Paducah will be holding a press conference at 2:00pm CT. This is the first time they will have held a press conference before a winter weather storm. We will be streaming the press conference live on KFVS12.com.
I just ironed a couple of shirts so I am ready for the next couple of days in case I lose power.
