  1. But so beautiful. We had a day of 33C on New Year’s day. God certainly loves variety!

    OH, WOW!! I just stumbled across this! My husband grew up in Clinton and spent many winters skating on the river, and a few springs filling and toting sandbags to protect the city from floods!
    I can’t wait to show this to him!
    Are you living there? We visited a few years ago, and he barely recognized parts of the city!
    Beautiful picture! Thank you for sharing!!

      Yes, we live in Clinton now. It’s my wife’s hometown. She does the same thing: That used to be such and such, Oh I remember that, and wow, that never used to be there. We visited my old home town a couple years ago, and I hardly recognized anything near the old neighborhood, but then LA is a different kettle of fish. 🙂

        Tha is so neat. I showed the picture to my husband, but covered where it was, and asked him if it looked familiar. He knew instantly!
        Your wife sounds like my husband did a couple of years ago when we made a side trip through Clinton on our way to visit relatives in SD.
        My nephew currently lives in the LA area.
        Have a great week!
