They Are Going Up Around Here

They Are Going Up Around Here

We live in a rural area in Michigan where there is a lot of farmland. The last few years there have been a lot of wind turbines going up in certain areas where there is a lot of wind. They go around like a windmill. There can't be a house a certain distance near them, although I don't know exactly how far it is.

My mother owns land in the country where they might possibly be putting up one or more wind turbines.  You had to sign up if you want to be on the list for an opportunity to have one.  You get compensation for having them on your land.

When we go to the city for shopping or whatever, we go by quite a few wind turbines that have gone up in the recent years.  There are smaller ones and some that are larger.  Anyways, I took some pictures of some the other day.  These were some of the smaller ones.  I'm not sure how it works, but they produce electricity from the wind.

The sky was such a beautiful blue with the giant turbines going around.  The clouds were awesome also, and some of them looked like giant cotton balls.  Along with the green fields growing, the colors were awesome.  The turbines look kind of like giants in the fields!
