A more accurate depiction

My last post about the barns within a mile of my house, gives the feeling that I live in a rural hamlet somewhere when in reality I don't.
My town, perched precariously on the westernmost edge of Chicago's sprawl, does have many remnants of its agricultural roots. But sadly, these rural images are slowly giving way to views of strip malls, subdivisions, and traffic.

Hi Darcy,
We're Melinda and Dean Ketelsen, who are wintering in Tucson, AZ - but live in St. Charles during the warmer months. We were sent a link to your blog by our niece, who also has a blog. Check us out @ We are actively involved in astronomy, and our niece is homeschooling our children (follow our link to Family Ramblings blog for Shannon's blog). Do check out our archives for some astronomy pics that my husband has done. We love the Fox Valley area and are looking forward to being back there in May of this year. We will continue to follow your blog!
All the best~
Melinda and Dean

Hi Melinda,

I checked out your site and love the astronomy pictures. Are you active with the Fox Valley Astronomical Society? They are having a star party at Peck Farm Park this Saturday that I plan on attending, weather permitting.
