Last night we talked to relatives in Missouri, and it's cold up there. In their little town, trees are down due to the ice and the electric lines are out due to the trees. They hope that the center of the town will have electricity by tonight. One church is giving out warm meals. Our relatives at least can keep their house warm.
While our garden is still full of flowers and the temperature was 81f yesterday I thought we all needed some bright color for the day. The flower is a Lotus that bloomed in July. I made a Seadragon picture out of this picture, go and play with it (be sure to read the comment).
