Backpacking gear to the rescue — Making breakfast and charging my phone while the power is out. We were lucky, we only went without power for 21 hours. +1

R&R by the lake — It’s time I took a short break, watched the lake for a while, did some navel-gazing, and maybe some journaling. The trouble is the weather has been beastly hot.

So, thoughts of taking a few days by the lake have been put on the back burner.

Storm clouds over Ozark – checking on the radar, the storm was nine miles away over Ozark.

Morning mist on Table Rock Lake – I wasn’t totally surprised to find mist drifting down from Piney Creek when I woke up. I ‘d seen the same thing happen in much colder conditions in January. I checked the water temperature and it was still warm(-ish) so I had a swim. Who could tun down such an opportunity? Piney Creek Wilderness – Day Three. 2 pictures

Can’t Wait for Friday … The forecast says it’ll be 59°.

Snow on the street in Springfield Missouri - January 2, 2014

It’s looking pretty out the front today. First school day of 2014 and we had an inch or so of snow overnight. Looks nice but it’s jolly cold.

Snow – It’s been snowing so Ginger sent me out to take pictures of the Bottle Trees. 7 pictures

I know the weather in the Ozarks is variable, but…

Storm Clearing. Not long after we’d set up camp at Big Bay Campground on Table Rock Lake some storms rolled in.
