    Hello friends. I hope you all are warm and are staying off the roads this week. This is a winter like when I was growing up. I remember my Dad when he worked for the state highway department and he would work for days and out at night to clear the roads. He would come home and my mom would cook for him and he would have to go back out to work. The roads were not as good as they are now. The equipment, well it was from the dark ages for sure. But he just did his job and I think he did it well.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. I really don’t know what to say about our Kentucky weather. It surprises us each day with something new. February has given us rain, snow, sleet and lots of ice. Some in our area reported six inches of snow on Feb. 1 and 2. Also, the groundhog saw his shadow on Feb. 2, which most believe that we will have six more weeks of winter. I really hope they are wrong.

    Ok, so winter seems to be here to stay…and stay, and stay. I have not been out of my house since Sunday. I do not like the snow and ice, but I am grateful that I do not have to get out in it every day for work as most of you do. Even Kenny has not been working because he delivers milk to the schools. I read on Facebook a line from a friend, “Ok winter, I tap out!” Stay warm and stay safe. This too shall pass.
