In my last post, I told a frightening story of a beast that is said to be living in Land between the Lakes. I call this frightening because there appears to be some evidence to back up claims of the creature's existence.

Every now and then, you run across something that catches your interest. Recently on Facebook, I saw a brief story about a strange beast in Land between the Lakes. So I decided to dig into this a little further to see if there were any truth to it.

The mainland United States has not experienced such a celestial event since 1979. The rarity of these events means many of us may not be aware of the potential dangers. We have been hearing about the solar eclipse in newscasts, newspapers, and magazines from all over the world on a daily basis now. Pretty much every one of them say Hopkinsville is the place to be for the best viewing.

      Winter 2016/17 was much milder than average as a whole with very little snow. There were a couple of dustings and I believe the total snowfall last winter was an inch or less for the whole season. This left many folks thinking we didn’t have a winter.

      The days between July 3 and Aug. 11, are often referred to as the "dog days of summer" and are some of the hottest in the Northern Hemisphere. I always thought that this meant it was so hot that even the dogs would lie around on the porch or under a shade tree to keep cool.

       I think by now most of you know that I dislike hot weather. But there are good times to it when it isn’t just stifling out there. But you have to be careful. We all love spending the long, sunny days of summer outdoors with our furry companions, but being overeager in hot weather can spell danger.

      A full moon is coming. What will it do to you? The idea that the phases of the moon are linked to the human psyche is one of the oldest and most pervasive examples of folk lore and mythology. It is woven into the fabric of our classic literature, poetry and music.

      You may have noticed recently that the countryside sounds like a war has broken out. Every year, Independence Day celebrations across the country include the fiery, colorful displays and explosive pops of consumer-grade fireworks. Many times, individuals start celebrating a week either side of the Fourth of July.

      Since we are officially in summer, many people will spend a great deal more time outdoors soaking up the sun’s rays. You lie out in the sun hoping to get a golden tan, but instead walk away from your lounge chair looking like a lobster that's been left in the pot too long.

      Make the most of this summer because it could be your last decent one: winter is coming as the planet enters the most devastating cooling period since the 65-year Maunder Minimum of the 17th and early 18th centuries.

      Snakes seem more plentiful this year. If you’re afraid of snakes, this news is probably going to alarm you. Among the 32 snake species found in Kentucky, four are venomous. Copperheads, cottonmouths, as well as the timber and pygmy rattlesnakes, are native to Kentucky.

      May has turned out be a wet month over much of the eastern United States, and it has been a little on the cool side. We started out with a pretty much snowless winter followed by a warm spring in March and April with below normal rainfall. May has been almost a complete opposite.

      On Aug. 21, 2017, millions of people will witness a once-in-a-lifetime event as a total solar eclipse is visible across the United States. The great thing is that our own backyard here in Christian County and surrounding counties in western Kentucky will be the ideal spot to view it.

      I was in my yard the other day, thinking about having to mow soon. The clover and dandelions are in full bloom in my yard, but I noticed something was missing. There were no honeybees working the blossoms.

      Nocturnal tornadoes, as they are called, are like nightmares that have come to life. They strike under the cover of darkness and are often among the most deadly weather phenomenon. As a matter of fact, Kentucky is number 3 in the nation for having nighttime tornadoes.

      There are so many things going on in our chaotic world nowadays and, if you are like me, it is hard to stop and plan for things that may or may not happen. I have received several requests to give tips on emergency planning. The thing is, we live near the New Madrid Fault and the threat of a major earthquake is always a possibility.

      There seem to be a lot of things going on across the region this spring. The New Madrid Fault keeps rumbling and fraying the nerves of those living near the Mississippi River. We have seen late freezing conditions causing damage to some crops and fruit trees. Then to the other extreme, we have had several tornadoes already recorded. Thankfully, none of them were real strong.

Most of you know I have a soft spot for creatures of nature. I have a family of Mockingbirds that approach me very close without fear. They seem to know I am the one who brings them their favorite food of mealworms. I have had a little skunk that always wants to come up and play. But I’m just not that brave. So I see the disappointed look on it’s face as it wanders off into the brush.

      By spending more time outside in warm spring weather, people put themselves at risk of outdoor hazards like potentially dangerous tick bites. Understanding where ticks are common and avoiding those areas can also help to reduce your risk of a tick bite.

      The New Madrid earthquakes were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D.C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. Church bells rang in Boston.
