Definitely in Horsey Country

Part of the Bluegrass Scenic Byway

We stayed here an extra day hoping that the weather would co-operate but no such luck. When I woke up today it was 46F and that was our high for the day. It remained cloudy and windy with a very odd sunny break. The good news is that we didn’t have a tornado last night but we did have hail and a thunderstorm but it passed very quickly.

Gordon went out briefly this morning to take some photos. The rest of the morning and early afternoon we didn’t do much. I read some and watched some TV. I haven’t watched Regis and Kelly for most of the winter so watched that as well as Cityline and the Price is Right. Mid afternoon I went for another walk (as I had walked this morning) and then we went to get fueled up. Our thermometer had quit so we stopped at Walmart and Gordon found his weather station that he’s been wanting that shows wind speed. We drove across the street to Lowe’s to see if they had anything similar but they didn’t so back to Walmart and purchased it. We then drove around the area and took some photos even though it wasn’t sunny. Lots of horses and money in this area! It’s a place we’ll want to return to, probably on our way south some year. It should be very pretty with the leaves changing and the green fields and hopefully, sunshine!

Nothing on the agenda for tonight. Gordon needs to figure out how to work the weather station.

Yet another, this time with horses
