Moonrise Over The Mississippi

Moonrise Over The Mississippi 2014-10-07 1

The October harvest moon was fat and rich as it rose over the Mississippi River and Illinois last night. Taken from my office window.

Our St. Louis Cardinals won what amounts to the quarter finals of the baseball playoffs last night, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since 2000, the Cardinals have been in the playoffs 11 times, appeared in the World Series four times and won twice. This is the fourth year in a row they have reached the National League championship series. Considering that there are 30 teams in Major League Baseball it is quite an accomplishment. Next we play San Francisco for a place in the World Series.

The Mississippi looks good under the moonlight Bob.. I'm hoping to catch the 'blood moon' tonight.
