KODAK Moment - Wood Bridges That are Vanishing From Madison County KY
As I was looking for one of my favorite pictures to enter into the Kodak Moment contest, I found this favorite moment that I had one summer day in Madison County KY.
I had been out touring homes with a client near US 25 in Richmond and after I drove across this wood bridge I stopped to take a few pictures for later. Good thing I did.
Now this bridge is gone. Yes, it's not even there now. Hard to imagine that something this beautiful is gone. Most of the wooden bridges I remember seeing all my life in Madison County have vanished.
Over the years, I have taken pictures of old stores, bridges and buildings all around Madison County and Richmond. I'm always sad to see that now they are gone too. That's progress, I guess.
Right now in Central Kentucky, we are experiencing extremely cold weather. Last night snow and today a freezing rain. Brrrr! This picture makes me have hope that we will be warm again.
It's rare to experience all this snow and cold before Christmas. My mother commented yesterday that it reminded her of the weather back in the 50's and 60's. I do remember seeing old pictures of us kids playing in lots of snow. Maybe she is right.
I wonder if this has anything to do with global warming?
