Blizzard in Connecticut

It wasn't a white Christmas here in Connecticut, but it's a very white and windy day after Christmas in the nutmeg state. The snow started falling before noon with heavier snow fall by mid-afternoon. Tonight (sunday night) the wind is really cranking up making it a true Blizzard. Snow fall totals are expected to be 12 to 18 inches. Here's a couple of photo's before the wind really started cranking up here in Beacon Falls....

How much is a school house from the late 1700's worth?

This is the Rimmon School House built in 1779 located Beacon Falls, Connecticut (which I visited this past weekend.) According to a local real estate web site, in June of this year it was sold for $30,000. The listing prices was $69,000. No word on who or what the new owners plan to do with this building.
