Almost every small farming community had a local grain elevator. I’ve written in the past how they are becoming extinct except for a few large ones located on rail lines. In the fall they are bustling with activity as farmers take the grain to town. It was not uncommon to see trucks and tractors with wagons lined up out of the elevator driveway and onto the street waiting to unload their field’s bounty.
This shot is of a grain elevator in a much quieter time. A few days after an ice storm moved through the region. The gravel parking lot is a sheet of ice and nothing is moving on this Sunday morning in late November.
