COLUMBIA — A weather system Thursday brought relief from Wednesday's high temperatures taking them from the high 80s to the 70s. People around Columbia took shelter from the raindrops as many of the popular summer spots of Columbia were quiet.  Missourian photographers present a look at the quiet moments around our community.
