Heavy drifting snow called for the cavalry to come out and do some serious snow moving,which this team of john deere tractors handled with little effort. My would I love to play with one of these toys.
I was out looking for snow photos and came across this Amish guy plowing with a tow motor. I was half a football field away but he still noticed me in my car. He then drives toward me and asks if I had a problem,sarcastically of course. I said no and he says then get going.I said I will when I am ready and right now I am not ready.That irked him even more and after he drove back , he was pushing snow like nobody’s business. I left after our little interaction and scoured the back roads but they were pretty quiet.
I snapped this image before the local Mud sale officially got under way this weekend. For those not familiar with them, mud sales are held in Amish country in the spring and get their name from the typical muddy conditions of spring. A snow storm came through the day before and coated these buggies that are lined up for purchase at the auction. I just did not have the desire to battle temperatures in the low 30s and winds of 20 mph during the actual event,so this will have to suffice.
I was at an auction and noticed the sky intensifying so I decided to go look for a shot, but as I rushed down the back roads it started to fade quickly. I was forced to stop where I was and try for something/anything before it was gone,which was about a minute after this was taken.Its nothing earth shattering but I like the colorful stream flowing in the foreground.
