Sunday Heatwave



My local weather info person (Alexa!) tells me it is 41 degrees outside.  What a heatwave, I say!  Compared to previous days this week, it is positively tropical.  But wait!  Freezing rain is on its way tonight.  Good times, good times.....they just continue.  Maybe no school tomorrow, we shall see.  

Today I ventured outside for a good walk and a short drive to photograph this old barn.  No doubt once part of an old homestead, it became part of a rental parcel with a trailer housed on the land.  With the trailer now gone, I parked my vehicle and ventured forth to this delightful structure.  Not much of a blue sky to photograph, but the brown and gold hues did not disappoint this morning.  

Linking up this beauty with The Barn Collective.

  2. ...starting tomorrow, most days here will be above freezing, our fluffy snow will turn to slush! Blue skies have been few and far between lately. Thank Michelle for stopping by, enjoy your week.

  4. What's really fun is to dig underneath these old barns. It's amazing what you can come up with, and some of it is valuable.

  5. It is an old beaut, but looks like it's in good repair and is still being used for something. Love old barns!

  6. What? 41 degrees, it barely got over 20 here!
    Mark Twain's family was from here and he was my great
    grandfather's first cousin, thus my great sense of humor.

  20. We did not get the nasty weather they thought we would...well, not as bad from all I heard. I did not have to get out till later in the day.

    I love how you treated this old barn...

  21. Gads.. I hope you don't have freezing rain and ice. I detest ice storms and we have them too often. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  22. Seems like the brutal cold is starting to lift up north. Stay warm, Michelle. I like this barn without a blue sky. The brown tones fit it.

  23. Beautiful photo and surrounding field. I like the starkness of the brown field against the sky.

  24. So many old barns and houses here--abandoned and sliding slowly into the ground. I always wonder about the families who must have lived in such homesteads--and why they all left.

  25. “Heat wave” here too. I just love that Mark Twain quote. We will have weather, whether or not. And I love that Epiphany is also called old achristmas! Your pictures are stunning!

  26. Such a wonderful photo...love the sepia treatment! Yes, we've been having daytime temps in the 40s...don't know why! I certainly expected more than ONE snow already this winter, but that's all we've had and that was early in the season. Take care and stay warm as those temps drop again. Hope the warm comes and stays for you soon.
