The wind blows strong out on the plains of North Dakota, gusting and turning in different directions. To capture some sense of that, we published a multimedia project -- "Follow the winter winds" -- at boston.com. It incorporates videos, photos, text and audio to tell stories of wind energy development, Native American understanding of the natural element, and more. You can find the newspaper story here.

There were broader detours from our wind journey, of course. So here is an encounter with Nels Nelson, of Devils Lake, North Dakota, offering a plain-spoken view of what will get America working as he took a break from snow kiting the frozen lake.
