I don’t have a video for you today, so I thought I’d try something a little different. (Actually, it’s not that different. I think I did a post like this once before.)
What you see above is the road along our northern property line. (That’s north to the right.) On my walk that day, this was the road out and on about another mile past the farthest point you can see here to where I had left my truck.
There was nothing between me and the icy wind but a three strand barbed wire fence (and in some places the strands were broken). It’s odd to think that Libby and I were cutting branches along this road recently that were encroaching.
I don’t long for the bitter cold, but it would be nice to get a respite from the Ozark heat.

Today in Missouri history:
- Etienne de Bourgmond was made a captian of French forces in what would be Missouri on this date in 1720. His expedition to the west forged bonds with the natives that allowed the French to maintain influence in the region for most of the next century.
- Joseph Robidoux filed a plat of a town that he called St. Joseph in 1843.
