Here in Hardin County, Kentucky schools shut down whenever it snows. I'm not kidding you. We had 3 - 4 inches predicted today and before the first flake floated out of the sky schools were canceled. Being originally from the great northern state of Illinois, I could use the story that my dad always told me about walking to school as a kid in the winter, uphill both ways for a couple miles with knee-deep snow! I won't tell you that but I will tell you that it wasn't uncommon to have 6 inches or more on the ROADS and still get on the school bus. I love snow...the looks of it but ONLY on Christmas day; the cold temperatures I can do without. Here are a couple looks at today's snow that did not reach the top of my fat feet...
