Knifley Pipeline Explosion aftermath: Boil Water major impact

One Knifleyan, looking back on disaster, borrows wisdom from James Russell Lowell: It was enough to make a deacon swear

By Jon Halsey

We can't begin to express how much we appreciate the "breaking news" info you provide.

The Boil Water advisory for our area had a major impact.

With 7 (5 indoor and 2 indoor/outdoor) cats and 4 dogs, it's like living with 11 four year olds and having to boil water for drinking, cleaning, etc. is a major event.

Emily let loose a LOUD Alleluia when I told her the boil advisory had been lifted.

- Jon Halsey, Knifley, KY

As a side note - You haven't lived until you're in your 70's and have to evacuate 7 cats, 4 dogs and a panicked wife at 2:30 in the morning and all at one time in two vehicles! To quote the Romantic, James Russell Lowell: "It's most enough to make a deacon swear."

While bluebird numbers may be down slightly on my Melson Ridge farm, I still see several of these beautiful birds every day . . . - Wendy Butler Burt
