THANKS for the weather report! And thanks to "all" who have offered to assist me and DH. He is making his way slowly to the car this morning with a very careful awareness of his back, headed out from El Paso straight north to Ohio....in the rain. whew.

Just trying to help...

Be sure to check out progress on construction of a new $140 million Hilton going up on High Street across the street from the Columbus Convention Center. The Hilton is scheduled to open in September 2012. When complete, the hotel will feature a 160-seat, full-service restaurant, a 100-seat lounge, a specialty coffee outlet, an executive lounge, and a large atrium lounge. The Convention Center’s parking garage adjacent to the hotel will service the property.

Will Yulia and Riccardo be attending this year, does anyone know? I feel like they're often at some world championship event elsewhere.

Good luck to all competing!

Purr, I'd be interested to see if it's going to be attached to the convention center. If so, that'd be the fifth hotel (if memory serves) attached. Which would be nice to have another whole buliding full of rooms as an option to stay at.

The Hilton is directly across High Street from the Convention Center, so it will be very convenient. Downtown Columbus has had an ongoing issue with lack of hotel rooms for big events or conventions, so this new Hilton is an important step towards addressing this problem. I've watched construction all summer, and it's going to be awesome.

Weather report for today...showers this morning and expected to continue throughout the day....high 59...low 44

Travelers coming in by car should be aware there are a number of construction projects around the city. The big one in particular is I-670 around downtown, which involves reduced lanes, barriers, and ramp closures. For additional information, travelers may want to check the following websites:
