Michael Perry and the Clodhopper Report
If I ever forget where it is that I came from, or maybe a touch of the home-sick, I read one of his books or watch one of his "Clodhopper Reports." The Clodhopper Reports are featured on Wisconsin Public Television.
PS. Notice all the salt being spread on the highway from the red dump-truck. Typical winter strategy for preventing the roads from "freezing over." It really takes its toll on the northerner's vehicles. A couple of winter's worth of driving, and you can just about hear the rust starting to chew away the precious sheet-metal. OK, so that just may be the spray from wet roads, but it really reminds me of the types of road maintenance trucks and the salt/sand mix they dump/spread.
