    KENTUCKY WEATHER. Surprise. The snow is coming down as I write this March 5. Looks like maybe we’ll get a real accumulation out of this one. I think it’s really pretty coming down. I don’t mind the snow, I just don’t want ice with it. I remember a few years ago, mom, Jamilee, Jackie and I went sledding. That was so much fun.

    TIME CHANGE. Daylight savings time began at 2 a.m. If you didn’t move your clock up one hour, you are running behind.
