pictures from today

Beyond that Corps of Engineers building is the Missouri River, pretty much covered in ice.

Taken in my back yard this afternoon: Smoke from the Sibley Power plant forming an interesting design in the distant sky.

This is what 131 looked like this morning, as we headed toward Odessa.

The piles of snow that snowplows had pushed up beside the road were as tall as our pickup.
We went to get some Muck Boots for Cliff; unfortunately, most sizes were sold out and we left empty-handed (empty-footed?).
Cliff spent lots of money at Clark's Tool, buying an Ingersall-Rand Needle Scaler. Don't ask me what that is; all I know is, Cliff is very happy with it. And since he used money from his tractor fund, I'm happy too.
The end.

Nice wide open country!

You're not all that far from Fort Osage then... God's country.

Great pictures. Glad that you got to get out. To bad that Cliff didn't find any boots. Helen

Hyperblogal, we're a little west of Wellington. But when we lived at Oak Grove we could see that smokestack, too. It shows up for a lot of miles.

Glad you got out a little anyway. Too bad about the boots as we still have a lot of winter to endure. Maybe they'll be getting more in later on. Nice blue sky you had there anyway!
