Monday night 58 degrees in Louisville at 8PM. Some nice showers moving through. In 6 hours we lose 30 degrees, hopefully the LAST gasp of winter. Probably what Iaotter had in Iowa, but here the few flakes of wet snow melt very quickly. There were a couple of snow showers but no accumulation.

Bad night for seeing the Blood Moon. Just like the Northern Lights in Anaktuvuk Pass. If the clouds are blocking the view, it ain’t no view. Oh well, all kind...

UK had a close call for sure. That truck driver did good. A guy I worked with years ago was killed by a wrong way driver. He just pulled out from behind a truck on a multi-lane interstate to pass and another car was right there coming his way. You never know when your time has come. Glad to hear UK is still with us. Personally, I would like to see one of those 70 mph roundabouts over here. Set up a couple cameras and sit back. REALITY TV!

Watching the game before the UK - UL game (Tenn versus Mich). So far it is all Michigan. And that is good for DotMom. She is in a basketball pool and is LEADING at this point. After tonight it could change. There are 35 entrants, not bad. She usually does pretty good in these brackets. She says she is going to be on her computer for a while, and I know she is back there crunching algorithms regarding team performances...

OH, BY THE WAY, JoeKentuck...

It is that time of year.

I have put it off as long as I could. But it is here.

College basketball. March Madness.

I sit here watching my school THE UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON (best 7 years of my life!) moving toward getting to The Elite Eight. They are the lowest (weakest) seeded team in the tournament at this point. And beating Stanford.

Dayton has had some very good teams back in the good old days... When I went to Dayton...
