Full moon over Mississippi River

Full moon, clear, cool night.  I took this from our back deck this evening:

The Twilight, LeClaire to Dubuque

This boat makes a day trip to Dubuque, stays overnight and comes back to Leclaire.  Here is a view from the Mississippi River.

Interesting houses on Canal Shore Le Claire

Here is an interesting one.  Through the grapevine I have heard it has been owned by one family for a long time, and the most current owners have rehabbed it.  Based on the outside, they did a really nice job.  I have also heard it was part of the Underground Railroad.

Snow Again!!!

It could have been worse, only a couple of inches and melting fast.
