Slowly rising

Life has been busy with non-blogging events and activities, and I just have not been in a blogging mood lately. Winter is on the way and there are lots of little things that need to be done before it gets really cold--so cold that people have to put away their fall jackets and don their winter coats.

Every week or two I pass by the Babcock Quarry. The water is very slowly rising and today I could for the first time in weeks see that it was a bit higher than it had been. Below is a picture taken September 16, 2014.
 Here is a picture from October 19.
 And here is one from today, November 6, 2014 with gray skies overhead.
 In a few more weeks the turn in the road will be completely underwater.

At the end of October the Jasper County Historical Society had some pictures of the now demolished Hanging Grove School. I passed by a couple weeks ago but did not stop to take a picture.

Speaking of the Jasper County Historical Society, they keep putting mystery pictures on their Facebook feed. Here is one that they have not done. Do you know where this is in Rensselaer?

Is it one of the side walls of Johnny Rusk's old Chrysler-Dodge dealership, next to the post office?
