    oh dear - what burned?

    Seems like you need to set the date on your camera.

    It was a really old store that used to be the local feed and seed they had turned it into an antique and furniture and mini grocery store. I always forget to set the date after I change batteries and clear it out.
    I got to meet a gentleman with the SBI that was kind of neat.Heres what a local news story said.

    Flames reduce a Tri-Cities region landmark to rubble.
    Fire tore through The Old Joe Howell's Store on Highway 19E in Avery County, North Carolina around 4:00 am Friday morning.
    An estimated 60 firefighters responded to the 4,000 square foot building; that's just about every available trained volunteer in Avery and Mitchell County.
    For decades, Joe Howell's Store has been a hub of community life in Avery County. It's been a furniture and hardware store, a grocery store, and mostly recently an indoor antique mall and flea market.
    The current owners say they do not think they can rebuild.
    Preliminary finding point to a wood stove as the cause of the fire.

    It is so sad to see what a fire will do especially to old buildings. I do admire firemen and appreciate what they do.
