Nest on electric panel has been source of joy, mourning for dove

This Mourning Dove has been returning a couple times a year for the past few years to this spot above our electric panel on the side of the house. It has been perilous a a few times when storm winds blew the nest and chicks to the ground.

She abandoned the nest a week or so ago while we were away.  The nest is still there and we expect her back in the Spring.

Playful, plashy platform brings pleasure to fun-seeking Yogi fans

This splashy, swashing sentry in the middle of the splash pad at Yogi Bear Jellystone Campground in Waller is the scene of excitement for kids and smiles for grown ups. We took some of the grand kids camping there this summer and got them hooked on water parks.

Storm monsters charge at us with empty threats

For the second night in a row, the storm monsters charged at us from the northeast, eating up the sky, but became cold and sleepy before they could dump their left overs on us.

We did get a great dark-falling breeze out of it.

Night-fall boast by rushing storm

This night-fall-rushing front blowing off from a thunderstorm over Beaumont didn't bring any rain for our area, but sure boasted it wanted to.
