    KENTUCKY WEATHER. We got some measurable snow last week but it sure has turned bitter cold again. After all, it is still winter. We just have to grin and bear it. Just stay warm when going out. Also, might be a good idea to put a few blankets in your vehicle, just in case your vehicle breaks down or you get stuck in traffic.

    Winter is again upon us with a fury. Since I have not been driving since my eye surgery, I have started using Tack Transportation services for appointments instead of making a nuisance of myself asking others to take me places. This Tuesday, I had an appointment and had contacted Tack to take me and they called saying their services had been canceled because of the weather. I wasn’t looking forward to the risk anyway, so I rescheduled my appointment. Hoping for better weather next time.
