We opted to move this topic in that there aren't actually pictures posted. We'll see how it goes...we can always move it back. <-:
Here are a couple of pics I found of my hometown (well, where I've lived for nearly a decade). Should really be posting some of my own--especially of the River with the eagles. The first pic is of the tornado's aftermath. That mess of a building was the college gym that held 1000 people for commencement ceremonies hours before the tornado swept through. Three years later, things are nearly back to normal for most, though many of us suffer post-traumatic stress when there are high winds and severe storms.
The second one was taken from the park where I run....and dream. You can see the ferry that crosses between Illinois and Missouri. The lock and dam is in the background--one of the attractions for the large birds...pelicans, geese, herons, eagles, etc. Maybe it's because I've been working with avian flu preparations, but wow, that looks like a dead bird in the foreground.
