Manure Spreader Weather Vane

Some years ago, Bernard Hanson of Wrenshall, Minnesota turned an old horse-drawn manure spreader into a giant weather vane. I guess, because, why not.

He says, "It takes only a slight gust of wind to spin the spreader around so it faces into the wind."

I was curious whether the manure spreader weather vane could be seen on Google Street View, but where Hanson lives is so out-of-the-way that the Google Car hasn't got there yet. Though there is a satellite view.

Just one letter short of Truth in Advertising: "It takes only a slight gust of wind to spin the spreader around so it faeces into the wind."

So...It spreads feces into the wind? Is that what you're saying?

That's a lot better than old toilet bowls with flowers setting in the yard.

Most weather prognostication belongs in a manure spreader anyhow.

Instead of it out standing in it's field, it should be sited on top of city hall.

It went from a spreader to a sprayer!

Astonishing that he was able to get a picture while bigfoot was riding it.
