You'll find a report on my shut-down day HERE. I made it just fine, and did not turn my computer on even once
Robin asked about the burning of the ghost farm. It was a deliberate fire; the new owners may have plans for the property, and those old run-down buildings, as fascinating as they were to me, were a hazard. There were at least a dozen sheds of various sizes. I took pictures of most of them just last week. Here's an example:
If kids got in there messing around, they could have gotten hurt. Not to mention the fact that vacant, run-down buildings harbor rats and other varmints.
I rode past the place yesterday when it was really blazing, but Blue had no intention of approaching a snapping, popping, roaring blaze. So I took pictures this morning; he didn't mind the smoke and smoldering ashes at all.
