Rain, an unexpected bunch of it, hit the east side of Daviess County last night.  Over three inches of rain fell at Yellow Creek Park, which is home to ROMP.  Organizers are now bracing themselves for a challenging weekend.

Late last night, Daviess County Parks Director Ross Leigh posted this to Facebook:

There is nothing easy or enjoyable about receiving upwards of 3+ inches of rain on the night before a major music festival with a park full of RVs and tent campers. These next three days are going to very challenging. #romp2019 #rainraingoaway #defining

He was referring to the local radar just after midnight . . .

Ross added, "At some point it has to stop raining.  Please!"

Luckily, the National Weather Service forecast for Thursday calls for plenty of sunshine, which will definitely help dry out the park and the festival.  And the sun is going to be shining at just the right time.  The festival kicks off this afternoon and will be the first of three bluegrass-packed days!
