Winter Begins!!!
Author: rrartist

Well it appears it's going to be a white Christmas in the Upper Midwest as the snow that was promised has began to fall and fall hard! I set up over in Dakota MN for CP train #283, CP #8934 as it sliced thru the snow. It met CP #270 just west of town at the Donehower Siding. CP #270 was really making the snow fly as the ICE #6429 and three sisters powered by - SWEET!!!

After a 25 car pickup in La Crescent MN, CP #270 heads for Marquette IA with it's 13,000 ton train. The four SD40-2s sure had a nice sound moving that tonnage just south of La Crescent. Over on the BNSF side, my son Andrew is the hogger on the North Local today with a fairly new GP35 rebuild, BNSF #2660. And last, Amtrak #8 splits the home signals for Grand Crossing on the north-side of La Crosse WI.

So that's where our inch or two of snow went, damn weather dude keeps promising and it keeps
going elsewhere, sigh.

Amtrak train 8 at Essex, MT. when I was there this past October. My other shot is of the BNSF units in the snow at Essex, posted earlier.
I rode Amtrak from Pa. to Essex and return on this visit to MT.

The weather guessers were all saying rain and snow here today in Kansas...oddly enough it's sunny, breezy, and upper 30s.

Great shots with the snow falling! Reminds me of being up on Donner during some of the storms up there.

Going to be heading to Wisconsin for Christmas with the in-laws, hope we get some snow while we are there.
