All Things Considered

06 Aug

That is the program I listened to Wednesday morning while driving across the Lewis Bridge into Missouri.  The Kid stretched to look out the window at the meeting of the two great rivers. 

“What do you see, Kid?”


Sharks in the Illinois and Missouri Rivers.  Beware!

The <a href="NPR program during that hour was hosted by Michele Norris and Melissa Block.  I like their voices and interview styles. There are no NPR stations in my area according to the station finder.  These types of stations are likely to be set on my radio if they can be found.  The website will suffice. 

The drought continues.  No rain.  Hot days.  Oklahoma had rain last week and on Wednesday of this week there was rain and fantastic lightning storms as the sun retired for the day behind the curtain in the West. 

I bought a rain guage.  It won’t be used for a while.  Windshield wipers need to be replaced on my car.  Maybe next week.
