The full letter, by Margaret Hoistion, can be read at the Watertown Daily Times site.We own a camp near Lowville and those wind towers have ruined the serenity of the area. I cried the first night we spent at our camp after the turbines were turned on. It was in the spring with all the windows closed. I couldn’t sleep with the constant whump, whump, whump of the towers all night long.
No, they are not our towers, and no, we aren’t considered close enough to get nuisance payments either. From our camp we can see five towers. When you sit on our couch and look out the window, you see a blinking red light on one of them all night. Try sitting outside to just read a book. Depending on which direction the wind is blowing, and how strong, determines which tower you hear and how loud. But you can always hear them. Well, maybe not if you sit right beneath them, but why would you do that? And why do you think wind power proponents take you directly to the towers? And no, I’m not crazy.
