Spring at 5000′

April 1, 2011

Sometimes change comes slow and is hardly noticeable, other times, it can be quick and profound. When we look at regional development, sometimes both types of change occur at the same time. While policy and process is often  invisible, construction and physical expansion is much more obvious and easily recognized. Our region of Ohio is seeing both of these changes taking place, and fortunately the news is good!

Once again we had the opportunity to fly around our beautiful region of the state. Last Sunday, our pilot friend took us up again to see the progress of the projects in our region most notably the wind farm near Van Wert, Ohio and the new CSX yard at North Baltimore, Ohio. I have included a few photos from our flying:

Van Wert County Wind Farm

Wind turbine parts have begun to arrive for the wind turbine installation near Van Wert, Ohio.  Below is the drop yard where the flat cars are unloaded and parts stored until installed.

The large foundation areas for the wind turbine towers…

Wind farm sub station.

CSX North Baltimore Yard

We then flew over to the new CSX yard at North Baltimore, Ohio.  The yard is impressive from the ground and is equally impressive from the air.

Thanks for looking,
Eric
