I fought the…

…snow plow and it won.  OK.  It wasn’t me and there wasn’t exactly a fight.  A mistake I suppose.  I don’t know how many times I have heard “stay back, stay alive.”  It isn’t a joke.

These snowplow drivers have a difficult job which is only compounded by impatient people driving like absolute idiots because there is only an inch of snow.  No matter how much snow or what you have going on – stay away from the snow plow…you won’t win.  All you will accomplish is having a bad day and making things rough for all of those stuck in traffic.

On my way home from work today there was a bit of a mishap.  I was thankful it was in the opposing lane.  Traffic was backed up for miles.  I am not sure what three plows where doing together (wasn’t a lot of snow to clear) either.  It didn’t look major thankfully – except for the backup.

Revisited – February 2013

Revisited – February 2013 hot out post processing.  Lots of shooting this last month – love it.  There was even an album I didn’t seem to get around to processing.  That hardly ever happens.

Assorted Photos – 2013: Week #8

It was an eventful weather week.  It started out windy and cold and ended with lots of snow.  The wind really whipped down Lake Pepin on Tuesday; it was quite the sight.  The eagles were out in numbers fishing away in the wind.  There was a magnificent rainbow sherbet sunrise mid-week.  I spied a pile of discarded household crap on a country road.  What the hell are people thinking when they do that?  And to wrap it all up, Friday brought several inches of white-fluffy-commute-lengthening stuff.  Eventful week.
