Chill Out: 1940

Chill Out: 1940

November 1940. "Shoveling snow. Draper, South Dakota." Medium format acetate negative by John Vachon for the Farm Security Administration. View full size.

 

November, 1940

And still clearing the snow from last May.

Sign of the times

I had forgotten that stop signs used to be yellow, not red. But I have not forgotten the blizzards out in open country - it's the wind, the constant wind.

Still there (2019)

Any bets --

The next plow that comes through will throw that snow right back on the sidewalk.

I never thought I'd say this

I hope that's mold on his face and not snow!

Oh, my aching back!

Clearing snow with a short-handled shovel is a surefire way to throw your back out.

Looks like the Siege of Stalingrad

But that's still two years in the future.
