“I like these cold, gray winter days.  Days like these let you savor a bad mood.” 

William B. "Bill" Watterson II (American, C
artoonist and the author of the influential and popular comic strip Calvin and Hobbes, b. 1958)

TIME:  12:28 PM
PLACE:  Mississippi River
SUBJECT:  Barges

A very wet, grey and gloomy day, with a very low cloud ceiling.  In the morning, the kids went to Sunday school.  When it was over, the family went on a Costco run.  Exciting!  I took this picture from the car on our way home, as we were crossing the Mississippi River, south of St. Louis.  I was hoping to take other pictures today, but I didn’t.  So this is the one I post.  I also took a long nap this afternoon instead of folding the laundry, I hoped it would go away so I wouldn’t have to do it.  Unfortunately, it was still there when I woke up – gosh darnnit.

We had that same "feel" up north, but with a lot of snow still on the ground.

taking a nap is really better than folding the laundry!
Great shot!
