    KENTUCKYWEATHER. Hmmm snow flurries, a little sleet in October? Yes, some areas in Kentucky got some week before last. We also got some rain and a few thunderstorms. My goodness we live in a mixed up weather state.

    I have noticed the colorful leaves more on the trees but they aren’t staying on the branches very long. 

    TIME CHANGE. Did you remember to set your clock back 1 hour? We are now on what some of us call “slow time.” Shorter daylight hours, longer nights.
