Well, I guess summer is over! I will have to start updating my blog more often. Winter will soon be here and with it will come snow. Right? Well – we hope so at least.
David came down to visit and we had a great time. The BBQ festival, a trip to SIU to find more out about the arrowheads we find up here, lot of driving around and looking for other local sites, a trip to Kincaid Mounds, and about 10 tasting tours of local restaurants. Hopefully David had a nice time, as well.
The weather has been warm warm warm for months on end. But, that is about to come to an end! Cooler weather has already filtered into our region. Tonight we will be in the 40s! Tomorrow night, as well. The cool weather should last for the next 7-10 days. We should start to see warmer temperatures beyond that time period. Most of fall should be above normal in the temp department and drier than normal. We will see how the fall forecast ends up.
School is going okay – this class is a bit more difficult than most of the ones I have taken the last few years. But, I will get through it. Just a few more months – it ends the first week of December. I will be happy for the "end" to arrive. Then just two classes left for my GeoScience Degree!!!!
Some photos from today – we visited the Kincaid Mounds (they are 1000 years old). Located in Massac County.

That would be me in front of the mounds

And I saw this sign in Metropolis – I thought it was sort of funny. Does this food go together?
