When Janice and I left Butler for Florida on January 3, it was 2 above zero. According to our neighbors, the temperature that day did not get above 8 above and fell to 10 below that night. And, as you are well aware, it has been a relatively cold and snowy winter thus far. We began to wonder how this winter compared to other unusually cold and snowy ones.

Happy New Year to all you wonderful readers. I hope 2014 will be a great year for everyone!

This morning our mercury on the thermometer dipped way down to minus 14 degrees. It only warmed up to 13 degrees all day.

The impact of West Virginia chemical spill to Kentucky drinking water continues to diminish

The lengthy plume of the chemical known as 4-MCHM made its way down the Ohio River with the leading edge in Louisville early Friday morning. Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) officials say tests show the levels of the chemical are below the threshold established as a threat to public health by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

“We have no indication that there have been, or will be, issues or risks to Kentucky residents,” said DEP Commissioner R. Bruce Scott. “Our staff scientists continue to receive samples and test water from the Ohio River and the final treated drinking water. Based on the latest data, we expect levels below detection in the treated drinking water.”
