Ice Cold is an understatement
Tending the beds
A Minnesota Snow Gator
Another Manferd Nordsving piece
(See the ATV from Hell)
Do you see the fish in this picture? An Iowa auction find-
the folky farmraised fish is made from old shovel heads,rakes, & misc metal junk.
Press on regardless !

Ice Cold is an understatement

We used to live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, so big snow is nothing to us. But a Minnesota winter is a bird of a different feather. Even if it's high of 4, it's usually sunny, roads passible, & good junk pokes out of snowbanks... just about everywhere. Get out doors & revel in it !  UFF -da.

Love the pics, love the junk, and love your attitude. Much better than mine about winter. Thanks for sharing!

Be Well,
