{19/365} Flavoring the Roads | Southeast Missouri Photographer

Whenever we, as in the Bootheel, even get the slightest threat of bad weather, grocery stores are packed, Wal-Mart is crazy, and the roads get the salt stripes laid down like a perfect hand in poker.

Today, I wanted to capture an image that embodies the preparation for impending snow and ice. I stood in the middle of Hwy. 84/412 that runs through Hayti and captured a few frames. Even our beloved Judge Keith Currie stopped to ask me what in the world I was doing in the middle of the highway. Then another friend stopped me. Yes, I told you I was crazy.

When I saw that traffic was empty, I got on the ground to get a different view of the pavement. Kind of cool, if you ask me. Or if you don’t ask me. I like it, alot.
