Funny story leading up to this photo...

I was on my way back from a business meeting Newton. As I'm cruising down the interstate, I spot these silos in the distance and make the executive decision to get off at the next exit and have a closer look.
I find a spot to park along the side of the road, where there appears to be enough of a shoulder and head out to snap some pics.

As I'm walking back to my car, I was thinking to myself that this scene would look much better in about an hour or so, closer to sunset. Well, I figured I really should be getting back to town. I hop in my car, and uh oh... Apparently the snow I was parked on didn't all have a road underneath it! The passenger side of my car sank in deep, dragging the car further over, closer towards the ditch. The drivers side was popped up in the air, and I could see the bottom of the passenger side resting on what I could now tell was the edge of the gravel shoulder.

I knew trying to escape this on my own was fruitless. Thank goodness for AAA! About an hour later, I'm drug out (for free) and ready to roll. But not before I go back and snap some pictures in the now golden lighting. Funny how things work out...
