Haven’t had much snow here but it has been cold, below zero past couple of mornings. This morning it was foggy and frosty, a white frosted landscape. The fog burned off and there was a clear blue sky overhead. We got up into the forties today and melted most of the leftover sonw and ice from last weekend. Had to laugh at the east coast and their woes of the snow. Everything all closed up…. ooohhhh poor things. Take a couple of days off, there is nothing real important in the world that the government needs to tend to. We are a pretty capable citzens and lots of us have dealt with more snow then they are griping about there. Then the newscaster said that with the government being shut down us citzens lost a 100 million dollars in productivity. I really doubt that, with them not working it probably saved us taxpayers a 100 million big ones.
Snow and weather in general causes panic in some but if I’m prepared for it no big deal. Nature has dealt and I have no problem playing the dealt hand. Weather is a good conversation item and it is always changing.
Earthquakes…. jello bowl we live on shakes. When the volacano was burping in Alaska I would monitor the USGS earthquake web site. It is kind of cool. It shows the quakes all around the world and it is amazing how many earthquakes there are daily. This is a link to the site… http://earthquake.usgs.gov/ It shows the one near Chicago and there have also been ones in SE Missouri, Texas Panhandle, New Jersey, Tennessee and just east of Maine plus all the quakes on the left coast. The world we live is a changing and the politicans have nothing to do with it.
These old wooden metal clad grain elevators are biting the dust out on the prairies. In the neighboring towns there were 5 of them that were recently demolished. I’ve decieded to start taking pictures and cataloguing these old skyscrapers from the past and put them on a web space. Google has free space of sorts and I’m going to try and build a decent site to post pictures and some stories/history about the dwindling icon of farmland.
This one is in pretty good shape and was in use until recently. The railroad has changed its rate structure so it is cheaper to ship by truck rather then rail.
check out its name….. rather unusual.
Cool clear waters…. and they flow on…. Peace like a River.
