I followed Bob Schwab's report and found the HP without incident. There are a ton of windmills in the area, inclusive of the ones marking the HPs of neighboring Buena Vista county. It's nice to see renewable power in action. Several of the towers had broken blades flopping in the breeze. I don't think I'd care to experience the kind of weather that could damage a massive carbon- fibre blade. Oddly enough, NPR had a story on wind farms as I was driving up towards the HPs.
