Perhaps painting barns red isn’t the best choice. Seems that the rec color attracts moisture in one form or another. Paint the building red, stick it out in a field and the first thing it does in gather snow around it. Quite a bit of snow. Unruly amounts on snow.West Hill & Browns Road, Lincoln, Vermont 01/03/2006
Examine the next photo for the opposite results; let the red paint slough off the barn and voici! No water in any form. Just wonderful lush green foliage in a variety of species. There has to be something to this theory. No one has worked this hypothesis with other colors in the spectrum. It might prove interesting to probe this further rather than relying on ad hockery for proof.South Lincoln Road Lincoln Vermont 09/27/2006
Now here again they used a slightly different hue of red and voià, water, oodles of water. Don’t argue, snow in the first photo is just another form of water. Wonder what would happen if one painted a barn blue? Magenta? Violet? Would you be run out of town?
Notice that the pole on the left has a fishin’ line in the water. Vermont’s strange.
