  • COLUMN: Almanac's October snow forecast a call to action

    Will someone please quit winding the clock? Time is moving way too fast. It’s almost October, though you couldn’t much tell it by the weather we’re having now.

    I brought out the Old Farmer’s Almanac to see what was forecast for October. On the plus side, it calls for 2.5 inches of rain. Rain showers, mixed with warm and sunny days, make up most of the month. One exciting note for the 21st through the 29th is snow showers. Kind of hard to imagine that right now.

    Reports are that last Friday the county’s health director and one of its nurses traveled to Beshear’s office to make sure the flu bug doesn’t bite him.
