KYTC crews battling Winter Storm Izzy

By Chuck Wolfe

Frankfort, KY - Winter Storm Izzy has brought heavy snow and hazardous driving conditions to many areas of Kentucky, especially in Central Kentucky and the corridors of southern Interstate 75 and eastern I-64. Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) snow and ice crews have been working throughout the day to help keep traffic moving.

"As always with major winter storms, public safety is our top concern and our top priority," Gov. Andy Beshear said. "The single most important and effective way to stay safe in extreme winter conditions is to strictly limit travel and remain at home as long as possible."

The National Weather Service at Louisville predicted heaviest accumulations - up to 8 inches - along and east of a line from the Lake Cumberland region, up through the I-75 corridor.

The combination of heavy snow and intermittently steep terrain made I-75 in southern Kentucky a particular trouble spot, with stop-and-go traffic between Mount Vernon and London. Along the eastern I-64 corridor, heavy snow quickly re-covers roadways after they have been plowed.

Letter: Oak at Clifty Creek has rings

Donna Rieder writes:
In response to Billy Joe Fudges' tree, I have an old Oak on my property that has rings exactly like that, and they're evenly spaced about 6' apart all the way up the tree.

Those are old barbed-wire scars, from when people would use trees as fence posts.
