15 More Windmills (Wind Turbines) for Buffalo Mountain

2004 July

View of Barnhart Wind assembly site off Bethel Valley Road, between Oak Ridge and ORNL.  This location was used for some assembly of nacelle components:
Barnhart Wind Assembly Area off Bethel Valley Road

Assembly Area While attending Behavior Based Safety Observer training in the vicinity, I took the opportunity to get a few photos of the assembly site.

Elsewhere in town (right), at a crossing on Melton Lake Drive, turbine towers were visible down the railroad tracks.
What's that down the tracks?

See the towers and blades storage site along the railroad.

Quote of the moment
While things on the surface seem more quiet than at any time since last summer, I do not like the maintenance of what amounts to almost full mobilization in aggressor countries. Surely they cannot afford it and if they had any definite policy of trying to work out economic salvation (except by arms) they would be showing some signs of cutting military expenditures.
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945), U.S. president. Letter, June 6, 1939, to U.S. Ambassador to Poland Anthony J. Drexel Biddle. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Foreign Affairs, Second Series. Photocopies of documents from the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library, Hyde Park, New York, vol. 15, p. 224, ed. Donald B. Schewe, Clearwater Publishing (1969).

The President had been convinced since the Czech crisis that war was imminent and that Chamberlain’s appeasement policy would not deter Hitler from further aggression. ~
