New Madrid Missouri

This was one of those “ah hah” moments. I had read a book about the great New Madrid Earthquake and a survivalist screed about what would happen to the USA if another quake like that happened today. We did not plan to go to New Madrid and visit the great earthquake’s site but we passed it by and so took a brief stop. We also saw that iconic crop of the south, cotton. We stopped and had a close up look at the cotton which was being harvested as we passed. Fall flocks of birds were busy all along the way. I got to use one of my new vocabulary words, murmuration, a flock of moving birds making patterns, a lot.
