The place was at a crossroads

This old school – now without either students or a roof – is caught right there between the agricultural past and the wind-energy future.

Yield: this is bigger than all of us

I took a bit of a road trip the other day, down a small farm road. I was surprised by how many wind turbines had sprouted in the fields.

Paisley

If you can make your mind think these things are a lot smaller than they are, maybe you can also make it believe that it’s just a stack of paisleys. Because that’s a thing, right?

Wind turbines look pretty big from a distance – and up close…it’s almost hard to comprehend their size.

Saw/blade

I am not sure why blades on wind turbines would need to be replaced. I am not sure why, when they are replaced*, they’re stacked up on the outskirts of Levelland. I am not sure how long they’ll be here, or where they’ll go next.

But I am sure of this: they are huge, even when they’ve been sawed into pieces.
