Wind Power: Turbine Raising

Here are the pictures of our windmill raising! The turbine went up on June 29th and we pretty much turned the entire day into a big barbeque/party. All our neighbors came to watch it go up!

I went out in the pasture to get some clear pictures of the tower being raised. The crane operator from Benchley Cranes was seriously awesome, my dad says the operator could have buttered toast with the end of his hook.
