Barn and silos by SmilingY Barn and silos by SmilingY
This is the two silos and only remaining barn on the dairy farm where I lived in high school. The rest of the buildings on the property are gone. Just the barn, two silos and two sad looking houses.

I remember driving the tractor cleaning manure in the addition to the barn on  the right. I would fantasize about electronic swallows that would fly around and swarm under the roof. My dad had the addition built while we were there. Now you can see that some of the roof had collapsed and you some of the trusses that held up the roof are visible.

Back then, sometimes a fighter plane would fly over our farm at a low altitude.  It was so cool back then in my memory. 

One cool story about the silos is that my dad adapted an old station wagon with a fly wheel and used it to blow silage from the field into the top of the silo. It was pretty cool. I didn't like climbing up 60 feet in the air on the outside of the silo, but I did it anyways.

The cliche is that you can never go home again. I found that to be true here. It hurt to be driving around and seeing it so gloomy in the land around our farm.

High school was one of the hard times in my life. I was chronically depressed but didn't know any different. I had been warned by my dad that the property had decayed, but seeing it like this was pretty shocking.
