This barn and outbuildings are part of a farm that sits across the road
from the high school where I teach.
There is big farm house up the hill from the barn,
but I don't have a photo of it.
This has a fairly long driveway up to the house.
There is a section that floods and then they have to go in and out
by a rough back road through another's property.
We (at school) know when their drive-way begins to flood
that there's a good chance we will have an emergency dismissal
due to flooding conditions.
(We get as many flood days as we do snow days).
I used to have a daily view of this farm.
I remember being thrilled at the view
when I first saw my room
after being hired.
I had spent six years in a second floor class room
with no windows.
To have a window was great,
but to have this view was fabulous.
Alas, I was laid off for a year,
and a special-ed teacher got my room.
I was brought back as a replacement
for a teacher who had retired.
Now I get to look at the science rooms.
But on the bright side, I still have windows!
