August 17, 2008

DeaconDavid’s comment: I’ve been a big fan of wind power, but I’ll admit that I have never lived near the wind turbines, so I don’t know about the sound and the shadows, but even with that it seems like a better alternative than the high price of gas that we are paying now.  Let me know what you think by leaving your comments.
