Winter In Kansas

The Family Farm 2015-11-27 1

We drove from Kansas City to Marysville, Kansas, Thursday morning in a cold rain. Nothing dangerous. We awoke Friday to find about a third of an inch / 8 mm of ice on the car. The main roads were fine but the rural gravel roads were glazed over. Slow, cautious driving.

Mrs. C's brother Mel and his wife Pat still live on the old family farm. They throw a big potluck dinner for the family on the day after Thanksgiving. The barn out back is in bad shape. It may be that Mel intends to restore it but there was such a crowd I didn't get to ask him.

Great traditional barn with those wings. I like it.

Sounds like a wonderful family gathering Bob, I'm thinking it may be too late for the barn :)

Great place, and family gatherings in such a setting are wonderful.

Love the shot. Looks like a lot of work is needed to restore the farm.

Terrific shot. Driving in those conditions requires caution!

Looks a bit like a fixer-upper.
