On Assignment: Dealing With Bad Weather

Last Saturday, Oct. 8, was some of the worst weather I have had to work through in years.  It was 40 degrees, windy and raining. Throughout the day, the rain turned into snow then back into rain and finally back into snow. Surprise, surprise, all of my assignments were outside for the day. When I arrived at my first assignment it was immediately clear what the story would be: mud. Instead of a standard feature assignment, it became a giant weather assignment. I laced up my boots, headed into the pumpkin patch and concentrated on finding the muddiest pumpkins and people.
