Beautiful renewable energy (to run my air conditioning!) Now if only somebody can explain why these graceful machines had to be manufactured overseas, I’d be content. We used to actually build things in the U.S. Elegant and clever things…

    I live in Burney and I think that the wind turbines are awesome. To see them up close as you are driving up Hatchet Mt. is to really appreciate the sheer size of them. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that no one will be able to go up them really close, as they have security montioring the grounds 24/7. That is too bad, some enterprising person in Burney could start a business and offer guided tours.
