Socks?
Not me. Too warm for socks here.

Another overcast day with more rain expected.
Too warm for socks here too. Although it’s quite windy and overcast, the temperature is all the way up to 46 or 47 degrees.

Re: HAPPY EASTER@ the MSC

Easter greetings to all.
It’s a very beautiful day in Eastern Iowa today, so I think I’ll make me a lunch and drive to Kent Park and feed the ducks. They seem to love pistachio nuts.
I guess this means I’m officially old. [smilie=asa.gif]

Very sad, very devastating news from France. I was there in 2015 and got some amazing photos. I was there at the perfect moment- 12:00 noon on a Sunday. All the bells chimed in unison. I’ll never forget the joy I felt for those precious moments. My heart breaks for the great people of France, who we...

Re: Time to go home Norman Wed @ the MSC

Good whatever, everyone.
Apparently Iowa is the only place in the country where the temperature refuses to go above 30 degrees.
