Welcome to Fargo East

Seems like this winter has been one of the colder ones in Lexington that I ca recall. We have had a number of below zero temps and some snow and a couple of ice storms. I have started calling Lexington “Fargo East” due to the cold.

(See a nice gallery of my Winter Photos from all over)

    • I understand it can be Hell in Michigan during winter time. Fortunately, Kentucky is not get impacted by lake effect. But I have been in Cleveland when that is happened, and I spent an entire winter in Toronto and understand how it could be there as well. Nonetheless, I am grateful for the beauty because by the middle of summer I am wishing for it.
