Winter Blast

Welcome to Winter Blast Week here at OPOD. I don't know how many of you are getting hit by this cold blast coming down from Alaska, but I will tell you things are very cold here in West Texas. So, this week we will look at people working in the cold. This picture shows a cowboy working in a snowstorm. The picture was taken in Wyoming in 1923.


  1. I'm pretty sure this is a Charles Belden photo. He was on the Pitchfork Ranch near Meeteetse, WY and took amazing cowboy & ranching photos during the 20s, 30s & 40s. Check him out.

  2. How refreshing to hear Alaska blamed for your cold snap, instead of Canada. We're tired of getting all the blame.

  3. Wow, nice photo with the long line of cattle strung out.
    24F here in MI his morning.....winter has arrived.

  4. Judi - you are correct. This is a Charles Belden photo taken on the Pitchfork. And we have consisently had lows of around 25 below over the past four mornings. Central Wyoming.
