Is Winter Over?

Jonathan Creek 04-01-2014_6676I rolled into Cape Girardeau not long after dark-thirty, got the van unloaded and the computer gear set up.

On the way up, I stopped for a 17-minute nap in the first Kentucky rest area on I-24. When I got out to stretch my legs, I noticed that the trees were blooming and some flowers were popping out. Birds were chirping and some bees were making their rounds. Does that mean I dodged winter?

Boaters and fisherfolks were taking advantage of the super weather in the Land Between the Lakes area. All of us who hold our breath going over this bridge will be happy to see this construction projection finished. And, finally, I just had to pull off the road near Wickliffe to capture the sun setting over the Mississippi River bridge near Cairo.

  1. Ken, you may catch the last of old man winter. Last night in the St Louis area (we live near I-70) we had hail, sleet and severe thunder storms with more storms on the way. The temperature is starting to moderate. We too, are seeing green and buds but no blooming dogwoods or red buds yet! For my fishing friends, the word is that the crappie haven’t moved into the shallows yet!

  3. The bridge in photo 6 appears to be the Eggners Ferry bridge with the new one being built next to it. It carries U.S 68 from Aurora thru LBL and beyond. Just got back from KY. lake today. The weather was great at Bee Spring.
