    Thursday, Nov. 3, 1966

    An early snowfall caught Anderson Countians unprepared as light snow, intermixed with rain, began falling two to three hours past midnight Tuesday. As the day wore on the snow became more intense.

    Anderson County schools were closed, as buses could not travel safely over the roads.

    The snowfall was said to be a record for Kentucky for early November.

    All roads in Anderson County were reported very bad with high drifts in some areas.

  • I came across something this week on social media that I think is worthwhile to share.

    “Twelve reasons I don’t go to sporting events anymore.

    1. Every time I went, they asked for money.

    2. The people sitting in my row didn’t act very friendly.

    3. The seats were very hard.

    4. The coach never came to visit me.

    5. The referees made a decision that I didn’t like.

    6. I was sitting with hypocrites. They only came to see what others were wearing.

  • Halloween is just four days away and no costumes have been bought or made for my 5-year-old. I guess I know what I’ll be doing this weekend. There is an “adult Halloween” happening on Main Street on Friday, maybe I’ll go as a chef since I haven’t made a costume for myself yet either. It sounds like a lot of fun and I hope to see some familiar faces, no clowns.
