Weekly-Weather-Wind

A Windmill…

at rest in the middle of a canola crop.

No wind, no water pumped.

And there was no wind that morning.

 

Windmills to help keep the power grids going.

The Macarthur Wind Farm,  of 104 turbines (I think)

was said to be the largest in the

Southern Hemisphere when built. 

It  stands about 2 kilometres from our farm.

The turbines still look large nearly 10 kilometres away.

I have been told that where the blades join the turbine

they are 6 to 7 feet in diameter.

Quite easy to walk upright inside them.
