Heavy rains yesterday made the grounds of the WNY Steam Show a muddy mess, cut attendance, had some vendors closing their booths and forced the cancellation of the tractor pulls, but fewer people just meant more steamed sweet corn for the rest of us.

There was also still plenty to see and admire among the tractors, antique engines and the vendor booths that were open.

The show continues today -- including tractor pulls.
