Burn it

October 23, 2012

Bob and I were driving across central Iowa on Sunday when we came across this house burning. Firetrucks were in the yard and no sirens were screaming, so it appeared to be a scheduled fire. Bob's dad knew the acreage and said a neighboring farmer had bought the property recently. He wasn't interested in the rental house, just wanted the farm land, so probably had the place burned. Seems a waste. I guess prime Iowa land is worth more than a house in this economy.
