Nope, up here in north central MO, I haven't been yet. Planning on going out in the morning (sat). Supposed to be low 40's tonight with a north wind.

Semo- are you all having alot of cases of deer dying from this fly-bite stuff? They're not calling it blue-tongue or CWD, but there's some sort of small fly that can infect deer and kill them. Humans cannot get this disease, but deer can. There was a case of it just south of Madison, MO (about 15 min from where I live) and there was a case of it just north of Salisbury (about 30 min from where I live). In the first case, there were 6 deer found dead from it, all in one general area. In the other case, there were only 4. I read in the paper last night where 2,800 deer have died from this disease just in this year! that's alot of deer.

Good luck to you man
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
