It's a breezy Friday afternoon in November, getting cooler by the hour. Under a leaden sky, near the apex of where East 13th Street and Curtis Sykes Drive converge in North Little Rock, I take a photograph of a street sign that says, "Welcome to Dark Hollow."Above me, I hear snow geese and look up to see the birds in a ragged V formation frantically moving south about as fast as their wings will carry them, aided by a steady north tailwind. I will hear geese the rest of the afternoon and well into the night as that cold front brings rain over a good part of the state as well as snow in northern Arkansas.
