A bit chilly, I'd say! Record cold temps across the region made for a very cold looking Norfork Lake. The wind whipped across the lake causing plumes of steam to waft high into the air like a giant boiling cauldron. What a great day to read a book in front of a crackling fireplace!

Good morning, everybody, from Mockingbird Bay Resort -- What a glorious sunrise we had...so thought I'd share! High temps will be around 50 for a couple of days. What a great way to welcome our Snow Birds from up north. Yes, we do have a limited number of cabins that we rent out monthly for folks who'd like to get out of the real cold weather of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, etc...and c'mon down for some fun at Mockingbird. We'll be welcoming our snowbirds in another week or so. Looking forward to their arrival! :) Call, if you'd like to head south for the winter and be a 'snowbird' too. 870-491-5151.

Fall foliage update: Colors are definitely coming. They seem later than last year, in my opinion, by a week or so. Reds are prominent in the undergrowth, with some dark reds/rust and muted yellows showing up in the trees. Night temperatures continue to drop, so things should be poppin' here soon.

Squeeze the last bit of Summer out before Fall truly kicks in.Try to get away for a quick cabin stay and recharge, rejouvenate, and replenish your soul. You'll be so glad you did -- and it'll be well worth it! See you here! Cheers! :)
