I thought of Mr. Host's requests for more snow shots, and this is the best I could come up with. Over the holidays, my sleeping habits tend to fall really out of wack. I guess I just like night time more. Nonetheless, this was one of those days I was thinking at 2am, I'm going to Nanticoke. And that's what I did, even though a snow storm was approaching. I started by getting pummeled by Lake Erie wind taking photos across the frozen lake, and I ended up here somewhat surprised to see RLHH 2081 sitting just south of the Nanticoke name sign. By this time, the snow had really picked up. Although there was not much snow on the ground, there was plenty falling. Photo opportunities like this are hard to come by, and the transformer station to the north was really lighting up the night, so instead of darting home, I faced the wrath of fierce wind and some obviously concerned oil truck drivers. In this day and age, being right next to the Esso oil refinery (at night), I did not stay long. What I presume was SOR 597 had also recently arrived at Garnet, indicating crews may have had difficulties with the weather. I would guess RLHH 2081 was tied down after working the Esso Refinery earlier in the night. The waste bin next to it oddly seems to fit well in the photo. It was almost 6am by the time I finished up with my photos, and headed right home.
