Some changes

This morning I saw a turkey vulture soaring overhead. It thinks spring is here, as do the geese and sandhill cranes that have been honking overhead for the past couple days.

The sun is getting higher, and we are going to capture it this summer with solar panels. There are three rows of them now installed in the far north of the new solar park development.
 The power that is generated will undoubtedly be routed through the Melville substation. A small building is being built there but still needs doors and windows.
 Do you recognize the building undergoing some renovation shown below?
 It is the dealer for the farm implement company that began with a better plow.
 On Kellner Street a little space that has seen a lot of different uses has a new one, a hair salon named "Ahead of Style." Cute name and the aggressive sign suggests that the shop means to stay there a while. (The last business there was also a hair salon, Maggie's Jazzy Cuts.)
Next door, however, the Oddities Ink spot is empty. I do not know if it has relocated or if it ran out of skin to decorate.
