Only In Ohio

Thought I'd share this story from our local paper:

Pregnant Cow Gets Loose On Local Freeway

I-70 travelers nearly have a cow | The Columbus Dispatch

Sure glad I wasn't on that stretch yesterday, I can only imagine the traffic jam, LOL!

Try as hard as they might, our city leaders just can't get rid of our image as a "Cow Town" (( Smiles)).

Anna, I missed this one.. I get the online paper but must not have seen this. Where I lived in Crooksville, this one farmer's cows got out all the time & laid down in the middle of the road...they didn't move for anyone til they were ready LOL. Glad it was a country road & not a big highway like I-70.

There is a farm up by Anna where you can't see the fence and it looks like the cows are in the ditch getting ready to walk up to the interstate. I called 911 once and the dispatcher told me that they get calls all the time. You would think that they would ask the owner to put some ties on the wire fence every 20 feet or so which would stop the calls.

You would have thought the owner would have put something on there so people would be able to see the fence. If it is barbed wire, he could tie some red plastic ribbons on it & if it's an electric fence, he could have used colored insulators on it.

Hi frogmama

Yes, I'm still here and how do I like our weather. I've had to go out quite a bit over the past week including today as I interview for new jobs, not fun! And tomorrow I am volunteering for Cat Welfare at the Home & Garden Show.. what was I thinking? Of the kitties of course but.. supposed to be raining and or snowing??? Blah! I'm so ready for spring, at least while I'm there inside I can pretend its spring.
