I stopped on Richardson Road while driving into Pigeon yesterday to take this image. The bubble highlights the huge crane, seen in the distance, that is constructing new wind turbines in McKinley and Chandler Townships, north of Pigeon.
The operating wind turbines closer to the camera are in Oliver Township. Turbine construction is also going on in Bloomfield Township, between Harbor Beach and Verona. Several more turbines are being added to the windfarm around Minden City, too.
Ed's home farm, Whipple Tree Farms in Chandler Township, has one turbine being installed. The Thumb's landscape will be different as changes are made from old forms of energy to the new, less polluting wind installations.
