High Winds Again Stall Cuming County Barn Move To Fairgrounds

Once again, high winds are preventing the move of the traditional barn from the Norbert Ruskamp farm in southwest Cuming County to the fairgrounds in West Point today. It's currently sitting by the road near Dean and Park Streets on the west edge of town.

The journey was supposed to begin on Tuesday but strong winds moved that back to Wednesday.

Now the final leg is scheduled to continue Friday.

It's a slow go for such a large passenger. The Cuming County Public Power District monitored the progress, moving power lines where necessary to let the barn pass, resulting in short power disruptions.
