585. Snow

I promised I'd comment on either the governor's State of the Commonwealth address or the weather. The weather is much more pleasant. Not pleasant in temperature, just subject matter.

My six faithful readers know that I like the snow. It is snowing now although the flakes are very powdery and I don't think we're going to see any epic snowfall. As is the norm, Jefferson County Public Schools remained opened while all our surrounding counties closed. We are getting just enough to empty the shelves at Kroger.

When I went early this morning to the store at Second and Breckinridge streets, there was no wheat bread, no skim milk, and no hamburger. So, I have white bread, 2% milk, and ground chuck instead. We'll have a hot time in the kitchen tonight cooking up a pot of chili - the one thing I know how to cook - that should last through the forecasted cold weather for the next few days.

One more note - my brother came over last night with a blowtorch and an aircompressor, and after some work in my cellar, restored running water to my house after a three day absence.

Life is good. Thanks Be To God.

Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
