  • Kay's Branch News | Golf tournament tops weather this week

    Snow! We have another skiff of snow on the ground as I write this Monday morning. This is April; the trees are blooming, Keeneland is running. This is not snow time, but this is Kentucky. Anything can happen weather-wise. The ground was just drying up enough for some of us to get out and mow the yard. Ray got his done, and Fay said she mowed too, but the wind was too cold for me, and I have had skiffs of snow every morning, so I continue to sit and watch TV and hope it will be better tomorrow.
