I had no idea part of Nebraska and Iowa were using wind turbine energy.  The turbines are massive and dot the landscape along I80.  Managed to take a few pics along the way.  Here’s one of the best:

To give you a sense of scale, I passed several big trucks carrying just one of the…blades?  I don’t know what else to call em.  The rig holding the blade was twice the length of a normal 18 wheeler’s trailer and had flags and lights and two cars, one in the front and one in the back, with the ‘wide load’ signs on em.

Yikes!

    Yeah, I’ve seen some of those trucks while in Minnesota, and plenty of the turbines in Iowa and MN. They are HUGE.
