I’ll admit it. I’ve been enjoying the Wind Turbine Sideshow that’s been going on over at the Town of Hempstead Dept of Conservation & Waterways in Point Lookout, but for the past week the show has been on hold – the turbine stopped spinning!
Rumors abound as to why it’s this way: Apparently that wind turbine needs some electricity to operate and there was a power outage that occurred over in Lido Beach. When you pass Marvel (258 Lido Blvd) you will see a broken utility pole as well as a few broken flower pots – that could be related to the power outage that might have caused this. I don’t know anything about electricity to further elaborate, but it has to do with the grid being turned off and restarted (jump started?).
I’ll update this post if and when we find out more. In the meantime:
Somebody Please Spin That Damn Wind Turbine!!
