When we moved here to the valley, the place was booming! A year later, the economy tanked. There are now more vacant lots here than there are people.

I’ve been aware of this strange construction north of the Middle School and decided to investigate it today. It’s a cool work of art but I don’t think that was the intention.

I drove back to the base after taking this shot and ran into Public Works Henry. This guy has lived here forever, plows our roads, and does pretty much every other Public Works job in town. He would know!

Sure enough, it’s an uncompleted airport hanger. Like every other project here, the money suddenly dried up and the job just stopped. What are they going to do with this monstrous structure of steel and concrete now? Just call it a work of art I suppose…
