Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Red River Is Nothing More Than A Mud Pit

Posted 04-15-2021 at 06:05 PM by case44


In the parlance of road trips, there are beautiful swans and there are eyesores. On my recent near-epic trip to Oklahoma, I couldn't help but wince at the sight of the Red River.

That rascal is never filled with water.

All I keep seeing are little bitty puddles of water amidst a big trail of mud. It might as well be called The Red Mud Pile. Never in the history of ever have I seen the Red River completely filled up. At least, I don't really remember seeing that. Not between Texas and Oklahoma. Now, Natchitoches, Louisiana, well, that's a different story. That particular segment has been seen with a full body of water. Why couldn't that ever be so up in Tejas? Even with some rain coming down in my end of the world today and tomorrow, it may not be enough to put puddles on top of the puddles.

Mother Nature desperately needs to deal the entire Red River Valley one really huge deluge. If nothing else, it just might make the scenery a wee bit better.

    Some places along the Red River have more water than others, but it will take a flood event to bring the entire river back. I mean, it will need to flood very badly.
