Remarks & Notes 
Working with the big flash units during blizzard conditions - 0 degrees F, 30 mph winds and 2"/hour snowfall - proved to be challenging on the overnight hours of January 30 into January 31, but yet rewarding. Roughly 14 hours after the photos, I am almost defrosted, but that is another story... The St. Lawrence & Atlantic Railway westbound train 393-30 is seen rolling through Groveton, New Hampshire, with SLR GP40-3 3806, RM-1 (Road Slug) 806, GP40-2 3008 and GP40-2 3005. This shot was preceded by discovering that the myths I've always been told about moose hunkering down during blizzards were completely FALSE. With heavy snow falling and minimal roadway visibility, the 4x4 was doing fine but what approached in the eastbound lane was not another vehicle but a large moose that came close enough for me to tell that it was a BULL! Thankfully no impact this night and braking hard would not have been fun, but evasive maneuvers were taken by both parties and ultimately he found himself in snow halfway up his legs.
