    There is a big farmstead at the entrance to my village, and part of it looked like this in May:

    Or a detail here (taken at the same time):

    But uh-oh! Something happened in the night from Sunday to Monday!

    And I took these last three after I had dropped Sabine off at the pool and was back "home" some 40 minutes later, and they (among other things) show that low light and the tele function of my little compact digital don't go well together... Hmph.

    Anyhow: sad ending of a big shed - hopefully it had contained only hay and not cows!

    What an unhappy development.
    Same Thing happened in my hometown a year ago.
    A homestead burned down, and plenty pigs were burned alive. Tragic occurence.

    The fire was first reported at 1 o'clock Monday morning.
    Now it is Tuesday night and the fire fighters are STILL at work, pulling out hay, spreading it all across the expanse of land in front and pouring loads and loads of water on it. STILL! NOW! Hay fires are so tricky...

    Well, all I can say about this barn is that still today (Thursday) there is a very bad smell of fire all around the building (I pass by this one several times a day) --- no smell of roast beef, though. (I say fortunately, though roast beef does smell nicer than a burnt-down barn!)
