Reelfoot landscapes

We drove 3+ hours to see the eagles. I know there are many in different areas, but they are few and far between in our area. There's supposed to be a pair at 2 of our local lakes, but unless you're out looking for them, you probably won't see them.

This lake is up near the KY/MO line, over by the Mississippi River, so they've been much colder and with all the wind, had areas of ice on the lake.

This is a fishing/hunting lake...no swimming.

Those little dark spots in the ice...duck decoys.

From a distance, I couldn't figure out why they were sitting on the ice. (I thought I saw one look at me as I was walking up!) Ha!

This is why it's not a swimming lake. Cyprus trees everywhere. The danger of being caught in underwater trees/roots, too great.

A glimpse

We've had a break in temps and are enjoying the warmer weather. This just makes me want spring to come even faster!

Come on spring! You can do it!

Adventures in life

We had to go to the "big city" yesterday to exchange a jacket. It meant crossing 2 counties because I had tried the closer store, which was still 45 minutes away, but it's closing and there stock was very limited. Plus it's hard to buy something for someone else, that really needs to try it on...which meant I had to take HIM with me. I should know better. Well, I do, but he still had to try it on, which meant I HAD to take him along! After being followed around the store by "secret shoppers" watching to make sure we didn't steal anything, we were sorta accosted by someone looking for a light...to light the wacky tobacky he showed us! :o Geez, the crazy things that happen to us. We exchanged our item and headed back to the country...the big city is just not for us! :)

This little barn caught my attention as we passed it. I made a note to stop on our way back home.

I have always wanted to stop by Arrington to walk around. I had to settle for a quick stop/picture on a rainy day.

Picnic with a view...and a wine tasting! I'll be back! :)

Weather

2 pictures that tell a completely different story. The first one taken on an early morning run to town last week. It looks like a cold winter day, but with cool clouds though, which is why I stopped in the middle of the road to take the picture. Good thing there's no traffic at that time of the morning! The next picture looks like it's going to be a beautiful day at the lake as the fog burns off. Looks can be deceiving! In the first picture, it was quite warm, but the cold/rain had not come through yet...and the lake was freezing (as I hiked down there in my jammies because I was afraid I'd miss the picture I saw in my head if I took the time to get dressed)...and it was beautiful as the sun was out! The lake is just no fun when it's cold out...but that's just my opinion!

Sunset

We were supposed to get bad storms today. The kids got out of school early "just in case"...well, we may not have gotten the storms, but we got an awesome sunset.

Rain, rain, rain...

We went to the lake over Easter weekend. What a
rainy, stormy weekend it was. All I wanted to do was
get out and take some pictures, but all it did was
rain. I finally caught a break Saturday for a little
while and again on Sunday.

First catch of the weekend...and he wasn't happy
about it!

This is typically a "dry" run off...not this
weekend!


More to come...

Spring...

It's raining again. We were spoiled. Period. Spring
started for us back at the beginging of March...and I
knew it wouldn't last. Well, it did for 3 weeks...and
then came spring break. And there was nothing SPRINGY
about it. For the last week it's been cold and rainy.
Of course. But I think we're finally over it. I hope!

Spring storms

I'm not a fan of spring storms...well, I do love a
good storm...just not a "severe" storm. (Not sure how
many people actually do though.) This one kind of
snuck up on us, as I had not had the tv on all
day and caught a blip on the news about dinnertime.
We decided we had about an hour and wanted to gas
up the car, so we ran into town...and sort of ran
right into it. D'OH! It ended up being a quick storm
with little punch thank goodness.

Storm's chasing us!

Too late, storm's here!
