Chicago Trip Awesomeness

So the one bright note to our surprise trip to Chicago was the windmills. On the way up to Chicago we discovered that Indiana has a giant windfarm just hanging out doing it's bit to save the planet. We also passed a school with a windmill and solar panels and what looked like some biomass energy stuff on some dairy farms. Cool, cool stuff.

Some people seem to think that windfarms are eyesores, but I can tell you that I thought they looked awesome.

Hey Sara... remember how we were talking about REMCs and that I audit them? One of the REMCs we audit owns parts of that wind farm. You would be surprised to see the statistics on one of those things - they cost a ton!!
