Carrying on from yesterday's post, here's the inside of the City Market Building. We stopped in for lunch one Sunday afternoon not too long ago. I guess Sunday's a fairly quiet around here. We sat upstairs and had it all to ourselves.
Look at this ceiling!
"The 1922 Georgian-Revival City Market Building standing today was designed by the Lynchburg architecture firm Frye & Chesterman. As a destination for farmers who traded within the city’s network of wholesale dealers, the building met the same important purpose as similar markets in cities across the country, ushering food from local farms to the tables of Roanoke households. It replaced an 1885 market building at the same site, which also served as the Roanoke Opera House and the station of a fire company." For the rest of the story, Click Here!

It's snowing here right now. Waiting to see if schools get closed. My yard already has a dusting of white. Weather.gov says we may get 3-5 inches. When I went to bed last night they were only predicting a dusting to 1 inch. Who knows?!
