Remembering the Days of Summer

Woke up to snow and wind this morning.    It made me think back on the sunny days of summer.   I went back and looked at some of the photos I took while on the road this summer.   On the crest of the hill in the distance you can see a windmill.   It was a “real” one that still pumped water into a stock tank for cattle on the range far from home.

We Farm More Than Cattle, Hay and Wheat

Last week I spend a fair amount of time in Judith Basin County Montana.   It is an area where there are lots of wind farms. Some had just a few windmills and others had more than I could count.   Montana exports more than cattle, hay and wheat.     We export energy.

Just a few of the hundreds of windmills I saw this week.
