It's been 11 years now, but it still seems like yesterday. It was the afternoon of May 22, 2011 when a monster EF5 tornado cut a tragic swath through Joplin, Missouri and there are many that will never forget that day.
It began when native Americans saw the light in the early 1800's and continues to this day. It's a Missouri road that has been haunted by what locals call the "Spook Light" and there's no explanation for the phenomenon that is still visible now.
It's funny what some people consider a "vacation". For some, that apparently includes visiting a haunted Missouri cemetery where there's a decent chance you'll leave with scratches and scars from the experience.
I've found one of the fanciest estates I've ever seen in Missouri and it's not even near St. Louis or Lake of the Ozarks. No, this drop-dead gorgeous estate that just breathes luxury is found in Joplin and I've got the pics to prove it.
We all have our ways of dealing with winter. For me, my mind leaves the current cold and/or snow and imagines where my family can go once spring gets here. A new addition to my list is a lazy Missouri float trip that begins near a gorgeous waterfall.
I have some family members who have been mechanics, but I doubt even they have seen this many catalytic converters in one place. Missouri police recently shared news of a staggering amount of these vehicle parts that were found in just one house.
