I’m a lot like my old man in that, when left to my own devices, I tend to go off into the shop and emerge with a completed project and not tell anyone until it’s done. So when my maternal unit sent this pic of dad hard at work building his own wind power generator I wasn’t really surprised — I did help set the pole for it.
Of course, Dad said he wanted to put up a wind sock, not a wind generator, but I should have known better when the pipe was way too thick and the hole was three feet deep and a foot in diameter. Then again, I’ve never been a terribly astute child.
Over the holidays I’m going to get the scoop on this project and see what he did to build the thing and what the specs actually are.
