An unusual sight

    The farmers are busy in the fields even though it is very early to be planting.  This is such unusual spring weather that you would think it was summer if you didn't know better.  It was 86 degrees yesterday and is forecast to be in the 80's today and tomorrow.  Many of the trees have leafed out which usually doesn't happen for another month.
     We found about 100 morels this weekend, but the woods is so dry there may not be many more if it doesn't rain.
     When I took Country Guy his lunch I was surprised by this unusual sight.  As I approached the railroad crossing on the way to the field there were railroad cars loaded with windmill blades as far as I could see in either direction.  Obviously, wind energy is getting to be a big industry!
