Mount Storm Wind Farm

With all the times I’ve spent in Petersburg, I had never seen Mount Storm until today. It was nothing short of breathtaking.

What preservation is really all about is the retention and active relationship of the buildings of the past to the community’s functioning present

sincerelysatirical asked: Hey what do you have against bus infrastructure as a means of public transport?

A whole litany of things really. The root of the problem with buses is that they are quick and cheap and serve as a “good enough” solution- hindering further exploration of permanent transit.

Also, living in Richmond, the city where in 70 years time, the electric street car was invented, implemented, razed, and replaced by buses doesn’t help give me a positive view on the subject (as planners here attempt to clean up the messes still left from the decision to go full bus in the 1950’s)
