1. I love my students, and this week I got to take a class on a field trip! I'm so grateful for grant funding and pilot courses. This one was to the Wind Farm just outside of town. The winds are regularly up to 40 miles per hour. There is a local sandwhich shop and the owner, Roz, made us paninis (Ok, mine was a gluten free, vegan sammy) and sent along a panini grill. I cooked lunch for everyone. We did a boatload of writing, had a very interesting, hour-long lecture and got to go inside one of the turbines. These ones are 220 feet tall, taller than the Statue of Liberty and there are 149 in our area. Good times!
