Admittedly, these aren't the best pictures, but they were taken from a moving car on a very humid day and my lens kept steaming up...I just thought this was so interesting, I had to put it up here.
These windmills were lining the roads and sticking up from the fields in the area of Iowa we drove through today. Knowing what a good fuel source wind power can be, I saw them as interesting, though I can see why some folks will think they disrupt the natural beauty of the rural area.
Here is an article from USA Today about windmills and wind turbines in Iowa.
I wish I could afford one for our house. The wind is usually pretty good here, out by the water, but the cost to install one is still so high. I'm sure it pays off in the end, if you are staying where you are for a long time.
I like the idea of alternative energy sources. What do you think?
I think seeing Wind Farms in action are so cool. I found a video on youtube where a school raised money and then put up their own windmill to power the school.
I'd like the link to that you tube video, if you don't mind sharing it...
