Stalling for time?

Things are on a go-slow again here and WP seems to be stalling or timing out on me.
I had a flag saying there were 12 new posts in my reader, then suddenly this changed to one. Expecting to see several posts I hadn’t read, I was surprised to find just the one.
This happens sometimes and when I go back later, a lot of posts have come in interwoven with those I have already read! Must be a time thing. That and the weather again.

At least we didn’t have a power outage here. We have wind farms up the road and also on the beach horizon in all directions.
Work is currently being carried out to add further turbines to those already off the coast. We counted almost a hundred from the prom on a clear day and understand in total there may be as many as 288. These should be fully operational in 2022.

I always thought they were majestic and mystical, nearly buying a property that had a sole turbine about 300 yards from the back garden. The woman said she never heard it and it wasn’t intrusive, though the day we viewed her property, it wasn’t working. We went back unannounced the following day when it was, and the ‘whoosh’ of the blades was intrusive!
We’ve since been on a campsite that had two turbines over the hill, and we heard those when the wind was in the wrong direction.
We have seen small turbines on the roof of a couple of private properties. Seems you have to have planning permission and also are restricted as to when you can have it running because of ‘noise pollution’. I guess TPTB believe the wind only blows during the day then.
They should have been here last night.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
