Hi, I wasn't born in KY and didn't grow up here. I was born and lived in OH for 40 years. I moved to Northern KY (Greater Cincinnati area) the Summer of 1996 because I met and married my DH.
Here's a pic that we took last Oct., standing on our front porch. The hills at the horizon are in Cincinnati, OH. We aren't near the OH River, but sometimes we hear the tugboats and the trains in Cincinnati.
Great to see you. I remember searching the map for Hebron the first time we talked on DG, I think, it sure is pretty from your front porch. When I taught in Louisville I'd go to Cincy a lot, so I know a little of where you live. Went to Carrollton, too, and that's close by.
It's good to have you here with us. Keep posting those pictures, I love the hills!
It was so bad here that Horned Larks showed up looking for food. We had 5 of them for one day in our back yard feeding. They're suppose to be year round in KY, but I never saw them before that day or since.
You probably were affected by that storm too. A lot of people in KY lost power for days, but we didn't.
Here's a pic of the birds I took. I tried to get 5 in all the pics, but they kept moving about. You can barely see the horns on these two in the pic.
DH and I felt really bad for all the people that lost their power for so many days. I'm so sorry that you did. I'm amazed that we didn't. I'm so glad you were able to get to a house that had power and heat!
On Feb. 14, 2007 we had another ice storm. Here's a pic of our back yard that day.
How beautiful and how treacherous, both at the same time.
Last year during the ice storm, I didn't go to a house that had power, they only had fireplaces, but no electricity. There was none to be had around here, so we made do with gas grills to cook on and fireplaces to keep us warm. This whole end of the state was pretty much in dire straits. But we survived, and learned a lot from the storm.
I mostly learned I didnt want to go through it again, that's for sure.
I'm glad you didn't have those problems.
It's almost time to get up. I probably should get to bed.
Great to see you again, thanks for the pictures.
