“You spin me right round, baby right round like a record, baby Right round round round”

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!!

  1. agreed. I enjoyed watching the spinning turbine as I drove towards the loop. In action its a thing of beauty, not moving in 25 mph winds its an eyesore

  2. The accident by marvel was a dwi who knocked out power to thousands and shut down the wind turbine and it never made the news why? She should be held financially responsible for all of the problems she caused
