A strong storm swept across University City yesterday afternoon. It did a lot of damage and knocked out the power for 12 hours.

So rather than sit in a sticky, hot and humid house, I decided to sit by the Mississippi. Quite a bit cooler, but still sticky.

There was a lot wildlife about. A large number of frogs were trying to cross Highway 67 and most were not making it. It looked like a particularly gruesome screenshot from "Frogger".

After dodging as many as I could, I made my way to the Lincoln Shields Recreation Area and perched myself on the river's edge.

I wasn't the only one.
