Not a lot has been happening around here, a few late spring snow storms and some thunderstorms also. We really need the rain, The ponds and lakes around here are either dry or very very low. Matter of a fact, drove by the council grove ks lake the other day and was shocked at just how low it really was. I don't think they can use but maybe one of the many boat ramps on the lake. Planning on taking a exploration hike or the ATVs down to the upper part of the lake and ride around and see the old foundations of the farms that were flooded way back in the day to make the lake. Also there are a couple of bridges that are flooded normally in the lake but not now that we plan on driving too and taking some pictures. Should be for a fun day of exploring.
Today while driving back from Manhattan as I crossed the Republican river I looked over at the river and saw 4 deer crossing the river. I wish that I would have had a nice camera and time to pull over to take a picture of it. Was so cool looking, it was over cast and trying to rain/snow and steam was raising off the river while they walked across in the water. Would have been a really cool picture I believe :O) Its been raining and rain/snowing off and on all day. Finally called it a loss and parked the truck.
Well, not much else to say on here today, sorry :O) just been pretty uneventful lately.
Oh yea, here are some pictures I have taken lately from around home. This is the old air base that is just a few miles from my place. It was a training base back in the ww 2 days. It was for a long time one of the longest run ways in the united states. It was made extra long just for the training of bomber pilots before they took off for the war over in Europe. There used to be a lot more buildings, hangers, and anything that you can think of that would of bee associated with a ww 2 air base but sadly, not too much remains today. Couple of hangers and a few buildings and a lot of run way lol Part of the run way has been kept up and local pilots still use it
