It was so cold in these parts 37 years ago, creeks and rivers, including the Ohio River at Louisville, froze over.
I was driving to work, headed for the Associated Press in the Courier-Journal building when I went by the mighty Ohio to see how much ice had formed.
It was Wednesday, Jan. 19, 1977. People were walking across the frozen river (frozen over, not frozen solid). I snapped a few pictures of the walkers, then within minutes police arrived and ordered everyone within sight to stay off the river.
