January Snow 0007January Snow 0007Landscapes Near Waterford, VA of January 22 Snow Day

Yesterday felt very much like being back in Vermont. On Tuesday we received a decent snow fall and the temperatures got down to 3 F overnight. In other words the conditions were excellent to get out and find a picture. Claire and I drove in the country side near Waterford, VA - which is a well preserved and famous Quaker-founded town whose residents remained loyal to the Union throughout the civil war. As we meandered around the undulating farm country we came upon this traditional fine farm home. As Claire said, "wonder what stories the house could tell".

I agree with Anne and with Claire. Everytime I pass an old home, even a dilapidated one, I think of the stories it could tell. I, like, Anne would love to sit and sip a cup of tea and browse through a book of pictures. Better yet browse through a book, sipping tea and all the while staying on a snowy day in a home like this!

David, I love the reminders of early country. I agree with Claire that if it could, the stories it would tell.
Why don't you do a book of these old homes? I would love to sit with a cup of tea and dream of what it was like to live within these fine old homes, whether large or small, they tell a story of a life long ago.
