Record Warmth and Flooding Rains

Flooding is already widespread in the Ohio valley and soils are saturated. In the coming days, tremendous rainfall amounts are likely on top of already saturated soils. Considerably more flooding is likely and some areas, especially southwest of Cincinnati, could see historic flooding. Over 4 inches of rain is projected in Cincinnati over the next 5 days.

Additionally, Tuesday was exceptionally warm in the Ohio valley, threatening to send plants surging into spring mode much too early. The temperature at Cincinnati reached 79 degrees F. That breaks the all time record high temperature for the entire month of February of 78 degrees set just last year  in 2017.

Creation Care and Environmental Stewardship

Genesis provokes more questions, debates, and doubts than any book in the Bible. To really understand the story, we have to step back from our preconceived notions and read it through the lens of the original audience. At its heart, Genesis is about a God who makes gardens out of chaos and calls us to do the same. Understanding Genesis will help us understand the rest of the Bible.

In The Garden With Ron Wilson and the Arbor Doctor Saturday, February 10, 2018, Arbor Doctor and ISA Board Certified Master Arborist Ron Rothhaas will be joining In The Garden radio host Ron Wilson for all three hours of his gardening show from 6 AM to 9 AM Eastern time on 550 WKRC radio in Cincinnati and nationwide on iHeart radio and In The Garden affiliates.

10+ Trees That Emerged From The Depths Of Hell

By the time you get done looking through this list, you might have to check if you are a pareidoliac. This collection of creepy and bizarre looking trees look anything other than what they really are. While most people regard all trees to look identical, it takes one with a keen eye for the uncanny to truly distinguish between them. See the spooky rest here>>>




610 WTVN’s John Corby Passes at 61

I really don’t know how long I listened to 610WTVN’s  John Corby from Columbus, Ohio, but what I do know is that I am self employed and in the late fall of 2008, when the economy was caving in, listening to talk radio was beyond depressing. I turned to John Corby with his mundane, regular guy topics and Big Bass Brothers and it got me through. John has been a regular part of my afternoons down here in Cincinnati ever since.

John was not only with me in Cinicnnati but on iHeart while traveling in other parts of Ohio and the nation. John was with me in Holmes County Amish Country and Sandusky and probably when I drove out to Rapid City, South Dakota. I always tried to clear my schedule at 3PM Friday so I could hear the Big Bass Brothers. I will miss John. I will miss his dry wit and his self deprecating humor. I will miss that regular guy in Columbus. Rest in peace, my friend, and take a photo of yourself in that Big Bass bathroom in the sky. 5 bowls? Happy birthday, John.
