A reader shares some photos taken over the weekend in the Shipshewana area.


As you can see in these photos, there’s a good bit of snow on the ground. Apparently it is piling up.  Another friend in Indiana suggests that could mean serious spring flood danger, at least in his neck of the woods.

The Amish around Shipshewana are among the most progressive, technology-wise, in northern Indiana.
