There's one on the North side of 180 just on top the Cap that had a blade break off it. I'm glad I wasn't anywhere near when it happened.

I noticed them putting some in
just west of 108 south
heading into Stephenville.

I didn't know they were still building them.

That's because our tax money is still going to subsidize them. Eliminate the subsidy, and construction will stop, and the companies running the operating windmills will begin to walk away from them.
