A turbine blade is to blame for stopping traffic on a Nebraska interstate.  The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office says a wind turbine blade slipped onto Interstate-80 near Gretna yesterday when the trailer carrying it went onto the shoulder.  Authorities closed westbound I-80 until the blade could be removed.  Officials say weather played a role in the accident.
