Automatic transmission fluid that is black is not good and most likely means new transmission or a rebuild is needed.
Yes, black fluid means burned up clutches and since you were using it to plow snow you added extra heat into the trans. I always recommend an external transmission cooler if you are doing any towing or plowing. Have it looked at by a reputable shop for repair or consider a newer one. Install a external cooler if you plan on rebuilding.
