So much to choose from on Take Your Camera To Work Day! Eagles on my way into work (sorta kinda counts but doesn’t) and some aircraft on the way home.  But I was hoping to capture the elusive Burnt Out Snow Plow.

A few days ago a snow plow caught fire in the middle of our parking lot, and it’s hulking mass is still sitting there.  I didn’t bring my camera to work for the past 2 days, and I didn’t want to miss a chance to photograph it so I hoped the thing was still sitting there when I got to work. And I got lucky.

Call me crazy, but I don't think they meant to get rid of snow by burning up the snow plow.

This poor thing. I’m glad no one was hurt, but man. This SUCKS. I got up close and personal with it and could still smell the charred remains. This is NOT a pleasant smell.

Crispy.

Crispy.

The guts of this machine seem to be exposed.

This poor thing looks slightly defeated.

Sad, sad snow plow.

Sad, sad snow plow.

Day 38, char-grilled.

**Disclaimer**

Should you be curious about the light, I took two sets of pictures today–one in the morning and one when I left work. It was a beautiful blue sky this morning but by 1700 the skies became overcast.
