Glad this is not in my backyard.
How many wild fires have these damn things started



Dang it David - last time I was in Iowa, up in the northwest section on my way to Lake Okoboji, there sure were alot of these wind mills. Never thought of it at the time but flat land and tall structures don't mix well with lightn'n.
(By the way, had alot of fun water skiing or attempting it since I only got up once, but it had been 50 years. Last time before that I was a senior in HS).

WE got the damn things around here too, some just 3 miles east of town
And a drag strip just south of town we have to listen to every weekend for 7 months.
So much for quiet small town living, huh?
