Grain elevators

Towns on the plains can be seen for miles and miles, marked out by their ubiquitous grain elevators. Every town of any size (that means a population of about 250 or more) has one, usually owned and operated by the local co-op. If you're a local, they're a constant horizon-marker and even at night their lights give you an unerring compass mark. (This picture was taken at mid-morning.)

Definatley some IFR going there. I had good weather on the long drive home but missed the changes that the different weather systems bring. Glad you made it home safely.
