"Five bucks, kids free with adults," answers Richard Wood, right, when asked the cost of admission to his
family's Spud Drive-In. Like farming potatoes, running the drive-in is a seasonal enterprise—from spring into fall. But cabin fever draws locals to the theater in all kinds of weather. "They'll come in a snowstorm in the spring," says Wood, whose uncle built the Spud in 1953. "The only thing that ever gave me problems is fog.
Can't play through fog, but we'll play through snowstorms."
