The barn is in excellent shape for the age it appears to be. I wish I had thought to take a closeup of the lightning rods on top. If you enlarge the image you should be able to see them better. I just love these with the old ceramic balls on them.
I found a photo I took with my old point and shoot about three years ago of the same barn. Sure wish someone would cut away all the growth. The brick foundation is worth being able to see.
Both kids and their families are fine and were spared most of Irene's wrath. Our daughter is still without electricity having lost it before noon on Saturday. Her neighborhood is on the list to be back online by six 0'clock this evening. We're crossing our fingers.
