Where Are the Snows of Yesteryear?

In honor of this little blizzard we're digging out from, I thought I'd post a couple of pictures from the Lester Harms collection. Both have a development date of May 1963, but somehow I think the pictures were taken earlier — unless May of that year saw a freak blizzard?

The government road crews did not plow Harms Road in those days, so Lester built a snowplow onto his tractor to clear the road himself. (We don't know who if that's Lester on the tractor.)

That is Lester's 1958 DeSoto. (The two people are unidentified.)
