Tom in New York checks in again today with a piece of technology that can be a necessity this time of year, depending on your latitude.

This horse-drawn snow plow is at the ready on an Amish farm in the Conewango Valley in western New York.

This machine was made by Pioneer Equipment of Dalton, Ohio, a well-known manufacturer of horse-drawn equipment in the Holmes County settlement.
