Windmills were a part of my life for a long time. I used to love hearing the soft creak as it turned slowly on lazy summer days. Our windmill used to stand at the top of the hill and pumped water for our barn. If I got daring enough and chimbed up the side the views over the country side were breath taking.
Over the past ten years there have been a lot of wind farms starting to pop up in our area. They dot the horizon on most of the roads we travel. When they were working on the first ones I wasn't very thrilled about it since it ruined the scenic view we had from our farm on top of the mountain. But they look spectacular compared to the one someone tried to build to produce power for their home and shop.
Needless to say it doesn't work and it has a lot of people wishing they would tear it down.
