KENTUCKY WEATHER. Getting lots of rain and making it really nasty out. Have to stay indoors. Some nights and mornings it gets a little chilly outside. Oh, have you looked at the trees lately? Lots of changing colors.
It looks as though autumn is here at last. The cooler weather feels good, but the rain is getting to be a bit of a nuisance. I am looking forward to the holidays that are coming up. It is a very busy time of year and I love every minute of it.
