The cold winds blow and bring more snow to the prairie. It is tough on all of us, some of us unknowingly fall into cabin fever. You must stay active like you do other months to avoid it. It can come at any time of year if you don't get out. The mundane lives early settlers had of not seeing anyone for months at a time often created a chaos within some families. I don't have this problem since I play hard all year long, but there are some days I would rather be at the beach rather than standing knee deep in the snow. The wind woke me up in the middle of the night and I knew a soft blanket of new snow would greet me when I got up in the morning. On this day I headed over to the Mississippi River between Clinton and Davenport, Iowa and observed my favorite winter visitor, Bald Eagles.

It would be nice to walk across the street and board your boat or have a picnic along the bank of this mighty river.
