Life in Christian County, Kentucky... The Rural Life...
The corn is coming up already. The miracle of life has happened again, not once, but a million times in just this one field.
Meanwhile, North and South Dakota are getting a bad April blizzard. I heard on the news that 90 miles of interstate west of Rapid City, SD are closed because of the snowfall. Power outages were occurring.
Rapid City, SD, sits at 44.8° latitude and Hopkinsville sits at 36.8°. In eight degrees of latitude, there is an amazing amount of change in the climate. Of course, Rapid City's climate is also affected by its altitude. Hopkinsville is only 560 feet above sea level, but Rapid City is about 3200 feet above sea level. Furthermore, Rapid City sits directly in the path of the weather that flows off the mountains of Wyoming and Montana.
