Summer fades, fall colors

Looking straight west into West Quincy.
THE VIEW FROM our Second String Music building roof is amazing. I went up last night to check it out after a recent rain - it's holding up pretty well but there are still a few minor leaky spots. As the sun was setting I took a couple of photos with my cell phone, and it's amazing what you can get today with these little buggers.

To the south the blinking lights of Hannibal were clearly visible, and there was a faint glow from the other direction near Canton. Way off to the north there were more lights, and I wonder if they aren't all the way up to Keokuk.

Summer is hanging on and it's still warm in the Q-Town, but you can start to feel the change of season in the air now. I welcome the cooler weather and the oppressive heat can stay away forever. Well, at least until next summer.

So here's to fall and colors and living in the Midwest. It's a beautiful thing!

The view north, with the railroad bridge visible in the river.
