It’s a Classic

I have seen where some bloggers post what music they are listening to. . . . You should see my kids roll their eyes when I pop this cassette in.

Harlan County Reservoir cracked that list at #99.  Harlan is typical of our large reservoirs in the state in that water levels can fluctuate dramatically from year …
