Bix Weekend Open Thread

Its the biggest weekend in the QC calendar, and it looks like the weather will cooperate. (Update: OK, not so much on the cooperative weather)I plan on getting some good food, watching a good race, and listening to some good music. I hope all of you have a great time as well. These are the kind of events that set Davenport apart, so enjoy them!

Not sure if you got the whole story on those wind turbines being stored at the old Cat plant.

I heard a little more info on them. These blades and components were being made over in Europe, and shipped by boat to the USA. They were shipped up the Mississippi River and unloaded evidently somewhere here in the Midwest, and stored at the old Cat plant. I imagine those things have to be a fairly tight squeeze through the lock and dams. I didn't get the name of the company. Maybe other people have heard some more info.
