Rumbledy-thundery for a lot of the night after all but only half a mm of rain. Not the 8 we were promised a few days ago before they changed their minds. It's cool and grey but should be warmer and sunnier tomorrow. We'll see.
I think wind turbines are expensive, inefficient and unsightly, not to mention bad for health and wildlife. If you live too close they give off a vibration that can bring on migraines and nervous disorders. The switching of the blades on sunny days can affect vision and cause headaches and epilepsy. Naturalists have done counts of dead bodies near turbines and found significantly elevated numbers of bats and migratory birds. The WHO thinks they're bad for people. Heaven knows what the ones out to sea are doing to marine life.
Seems to me solar panels are relatively unobtrusive and the only time they're not working is when covered n snow. If you get the ones made in Europe they are of high quality.
Love that tree. Old gnarly trunks like that are wonderful.
Good luck with the new let Hosta.
Nervous times till Thursday's post Chicky!
