While on my back road travels on August 1st I noticed these awesome clouds hovering over a farm owned by the Schlegel family on Vine Street in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania. I stopped to make this image and I am very glad I did. The garage in the middle and the corn crib on the right were destroyed by fire the next month on September 17th. Luckily the large main barn on the left survived, seemingly undamaged. The barns probably date back to the early 1800s or possibly earlier and farms like this are some of the oldest remaining buildings in Fleetwood and a key part of its historical record.
