I had the camera with me and took a few photos as we drove in from the village. I had forgotten it the day before and of course, the opportunity to take the picture I wanted of the burnt out car along the highway near the police checkpoint was gone by Monday afternoon. It was very burnt and looked like it must have been an old Lada or Moshvich, with what was left of it's melted frame beside the opposite side of the road and the hood or some other large part which had ended up in the center of the road between lanes. Must have exploded while burning on Friday night, we guess, because I caught a glimpse of it when we went in Saturday morning to pick up stuff at the home improvement store and metal market in the fog, but the camera battery died before we drove home.

The shop is stacked with fertilizer for spring planting, and they are buying seed corn.
Garry and I went out yesterday and snapped a photo of one of the winter wheat fields. This one had sorghum on last year, that's what all the big stalks are on the ground, but you can see it's turning green in spite of the late start it got because of the dry weather last fall.
