The Barn Must Come Down!

Yes, AllState has informed us that "the barn must come down" or they will revoke our home owners insurance policy on the farm.

Apparently they don't appreciate the Leaning Tower of Pisa-ness of the structure. They do not see the years of history weighing heavily upon it's sloped and sagging roof. They cannot feel the generations of grandsons learning to repair a broken tractor within it's four perforated walls. They don't recognize the beauty of the weathered wood crafted by decades of Pennsylvania snowstorms.

Pity, really 'tis.

We will spend our President's Day Holiday tearing down the old barn.

Expect notice of a Barn Raisin' Party later this spring. Details TBD.
