April 18, 2008 at 5:45 PMHere I am, a visitor from Los Angeles, enjoying the peace and quiet of my sister's home, nestled in the rolling hills of Northern Kentucky, by Cincinnati.
All week long, I've been taking credit for the beautiful spring weather: "I brought you some California sunshine!" I informed my five-month-old baby niece with a smile.
This morning, as I was rolling over in bed, I awakened with a start. For some inexplicable reason, the windows were rattling softly, but insistently. Then, my bed shook, then the entire house shook!
"Rolling hills," indeed.
"You know," I said, as I held my sister's little girl later this morning, "Nobody can control Mother Nature!"
That is what is so awesome about Kentucky:
Earthquakes, tornadoes, plus floods. AND the grass is blue...
Now that's a tremelo!!!
