Snow

High Trestle Bridge, in Winter

There is an amazing trestle bridge just north of the Des Moines area in Central Iowa. The town is called Madrid, but it isn’t pronounced like the Madrid you and I know – they pronounce it Maadrid, which is a little odd but okay. I’ve been up to this trestle bridge a few times in the past, but with my new equipment I am able to get into tight spots from great distances, which I can appreciate in a shoot like this. There’s nowhere to park, for miles. I’ve never actually walked the bridge, but I hope to some day, once the snow melts. Anyway, here’s a quick video of my time up there the other day. I’ll post a few pictures here as well.

First Snow of 2015!

Central Iowa is being hit hard by the first snow storm of 2015, currently rolling through. I’m going to have to break out the snow thrower on this one, glad I recently upgraded to a 2 stage 4 stroke. I have a feeling we’ll be up to a foot by the time we wake up tomorrow morning. It’s really coming down!

Bruno and the Snow! Thanksgiving in Des Moines, 2014

We got about 3″ of snow overnight. This is our second “real” snow this year and I’ve learned that I need a better snow blower. I found one on Craigslist that is two stage, and that’s what I need to really throw the snow out of here and clear the driveway quickly. Bruno is out having fun in it. Here are a few pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable extended weekend…
