    Interesting pictures. I’ve been to quite a few Amish consignment/benefit auctions in several states, but never was at one in cold, snowy weather, so this gave me a new perspective.

    Covered bridges

    Love the photos! If you’d like to see many more covered bridges, come up to Columbia County. Unfortunately, we’ve lost some to floods in recent years.

    Loved the pics!

    I really enjoyed the pictures, especially the old washers, as they reminded me of my grandmother. I am curious about one thing…why do the men have on straw hats in the winter? Around here, they switch to felt hats and sock caps when it is old outside. Loved the sunsets!! Thanks for sharing.

    We went to the Robert Fulton mud sale this year because it was recommended by our Amish friends. It did indeed seem to have the biggest assortment, especially of tools and equipment, of the sales we have been to, and things went at good prices.

    But my main reason for leaving a comment is that the pic of grilling chicken reminded me, we had some at the RF sale, and was it ever good! I don’t know when we’ve had better. We may have to go back next year just for it.

    Cliff the Snowman at Bart Mud Sale

    Thank you, Ed, for the photos, especially the sunrises, row of buggies, gigantic snowman (with a perspective of how big it really was), sleighs, farm lane cleared of snow, covered bridges, and the sunset with the windmill.

    If life gives you snow, make a snowman! Did they name the snowman Cliff?

    A report from
    http://www.bart51.com/
    says “Despite an 11″ snowstorm on the Thursday before the 1st sale and another 4″ snowstorm on the Friday before the 2nd sale, thank you to everyone for clearing the salegrounds. A 15 Foot Snowman [was] built by Sale Committee members 2 days before 51st Mud Sale 3-5-2015 (11″ snowstorm).”

    May I add that 138 photos of the 2015 Bart Fire Co. Mud Sale can be seen at:

    the snowman had a smaller ontario cousin

    I love the snowman picture.
    Cliff the snowman had a little cousin here on my street. He appeared in front of a house next to one of the two churches on my street, I think he was created in an effort to store the snow from the sidewalk and along alley-way between the home and church, if not the corner church’s parking lot itself.
    I’ll call the snowman ‘J.W.” in reference to the denomination of the church whose parking lot he probably came from. I think ‘he’ lasted for a very long time.

    Loved everyone of Ed’s pictures he shared with us. The sunrises and sunsets. The covered bridges , the sleigh and the mud sales. Great post.
