  • Snow, deicing agents and plants

    Up until recently, our mild winter has seen little snow. Snow has an insulating effect, which is particularly useful when we have frigid temperatures; otherwise it can be a joy to snow lovers and a nuisance to those who would rather be “snow birds.”  
    Ground-level snow will actually protect the roots and crowns of perennial and woody plants, but you may notice a little burn above the snow level when it comes to broadleaf evergreens.

  • Museum Musings

    * Cynthiana News, Aug. 8, 1867 -- “Robert T. Rankin, express agent at this place, has furnished himself with a new express wagon with a cover to it. It reminds us much of an ambulance.”
    * Cynthiana Democrat, June 30, 1938 -- “Workmen began razing the buildings at the corner of Walnut and Bridge Street, known for many years as Cox’s Corner. The lot formerly belonged to Daniel Durbin and had been used as a restaurant and barber shop since way back when. The new building will be leased by Gulf Oil and Refining Company for a filling station.”

  • Warm fire or smoky chimney

    The fire season has finally started -- in the fireplace, that is.  
    Early winter was so mild I wasn’t sure if we would be in need of some extra warmth.  Recent frigid temperatures changed all that and we have the wood stacked and sorted for easy access as we lay a fire for the evening. However, not all wood is created equal if you plan to use it for warmth in the fireplace.
    Since I have perfected my wood-splitting technique, I have come to understand different species of wood and their burning potential.
