Friday's Photo: Snow!

Reports say that we had more than five inches of snow in Virginia Beach yesterday. We usually get snow a few times a year, but not this much. I don't picture snow when I think of the states farther south, but my sister, in Alabama, reported 10 inches on her Facebook page. This photo, probably taken in Texas, shows a heavy snow.  

There are no markings on the photo. The building looks stately. Could it be a church or college building? Maybe an elementary school? 

The photo belonged to my aunt, DeRay Bryan. She attended schools in Seymour, Texas and Simmons College (now Hardin-Simmons University) in Abilene. In the 1920s she taught grade school Seymour, Amherst, and Borger - all in Texas. DeRay lived in Borger, Texas from 1927 until her death in 1987. I have looked at schools and churches in those areas at that time period, but did not find a match. 

Stay warm!
