Wind turbine

It took me a few moments to figure out what these trucks were hauling but they are wind turbine blades. Bigger than I thought! Lucky to get the pictures with me going 70 in one direction and the truck traveling the other way.

A lot of hard work went into the design, promotion, grant writing and planning for this new family reunion pavilion in East St. Louis. Great to see it under construction.
