Not Passing Wind

“If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.”
Latin Proverb

The wind was not serving on this calm evening at the Altamont Pass Wind Farm near Livermore, California. I doubt oars would help much here. The Altamont Pass Wind Farm is the largest concentration of wind turbines in the world but it does have kind of a funny name.

  4. i know it's a crucial part of the whole concept/construct, but maybe we should just leave the "wind" part out.

  8. These look so much more friendly than the stiff uptight bitches they call "windmills" here in the Netherlands.
