This wet spring

Apparently this spring's flood(s) caused about $30 million damage to Kentucky's roads.

But I can tell you the damage from the wet weather doesn't end at the high water mark. There are many, many places along tributaries, on the ridges and in between where the record rainfall we've gotten has contributed to slides that have damaged or taken out roads -- state highways and one-lane country roads.

On top of that, grain prices could be going up if farmers can't get into their wet fields to plant.

Just a few things to ponder.
