A Taste of Spring

It’s cooling off in Central Kentucky today, and we have a chance of an inch or so of snow Thursday. But the weekend was nice as we had sunny skies and 72 degrees here Saturday. My three youngest nephews all had hockey tournaments in the Cincinnati area. I was able to see all three of them play and do some visiting. Pretty rare to be able to drive around southwestern Ohio with the top down on the convertible in mid-February :-).

As I type this, the Kentucky men are in command in Rupp Arena over Alabama. If they wrap up a win, they will continue all alone in the lead in the Southeastern Conference. This despite a 2-point overtime loss at Texas A&M Saturday night. The Cats have games with Vanderbilt, Florida and LSU to wrap up the regular season.

The Ohio State men are 4-0 since my last post, and are now 10-5 in the Big Ten. The Bucks play host to Michigan State tonight. A win over the Spartans would do a lot to enhance OSU’s tournament resume. Indiana and Iowa are at the top of the Big Ten with 3 losses each.

The Kentucky women are out of the running for the SEC regular season title, but are playing better lately. They have won four in-a-row since the loss to league-leading South Carolina, and those four games have not be very close. The Cats have an excellent chance of making some noise in the SEC tournament.

The Ohio State women are the crown jewel of the winter. They are leading the league at 15-1, with the one loss on the road at Northwestern. OSU swept Maryland who is right behind at 14-2.

I’ve had some time to work on old radios here lately. I have cleaned up a couple sets of Drake “twins”. These go back to the days when receivers and transmitters were separate units. I also just received an order of electrolytic capacitors to rebuild some power supplies for Heathkit equipment.
