They grow more than corn and beans in Illinois

On the way back from my grandparents' 60th we drove past the Camp Grove Wind Farm along Highway 40. The wind turbines are currently being constructed, and I was leaning out the rear window trying to get a good look. Here's a few pictures:Here's one that's under construction:I've noticed more and more of these going up down in Illinois and in southern Wisconsin. Whenever I go down to Illinois I listen in on the conversations that my grandfather, uncle and cousins have about the state of affairs in Illinois. Aside from the usual talk about the price of corn and the crazy things that tractors can do these days, now wind farms are a bit of a hot topic.
