I took this picture a couple of winters ago and you can see the peeling paint, shriveled vines and disrepair...(actually it had great character)
This is the picture I took today....
See what a few million dollars can do for an old civil war era barn. No wonder there are so many farms in dis-repair around this area if it takes that much money to renovate them. It is probably much cheaper to just put up a metal barn and let the wood barn eventually become one with nature.
The parking lot next to the barn was closed for the winter so I had to park my car by the dog park and walk which was only about a block. When I returned when what did my wondering eyes should appear, but
After this stop I drove around at more snowy spots capturing beauty....even the dried queen anne's lace and the shriveled red berries have the look of magic in the winter.
And finally a stop at the golf course...so pristine, no golfers today.
And yes, it did snow again...can't say that it started at exactly 2:30, but it was in the afternoon.
