PDP #288: Washington State's Wild Horses

For three years I lived a stone's throw from the WindShare Turbine in Toronto's Exhibition Place, one of two wind turbines in the Greater Toronto Area. Recent efforts to increase that number have met with opposition - in particular, a handful of Scarborough residents have been pitching a fit about the prospect of floating wind turbines on Lake Ontario, several kilometers out from shore, because they'll wreck the view or some such drivel.

For me, I find a dignified beauty in the wind turbines spinning stately beneath the open sky. It was fortunate in that regard that the route west passed by Puget Sound Energy's Wild Horse Wind Farm, one hundred and twenty-seven turbines generating renewable power for Seattle.
