GROUSE MOUNTAIN WIND TURBINE... IT'S ALIVE!!!

I told you about Grouse Mountain's wind turbine a little while back. Remember that ? Well, every day as I drive to the V.I.A. office, after I pass Ken Lum's East Van cross I look up at the mountain to see if that windmill is turning yet.

I told you about Grouse Mountain's wind turbine a little while back. Remember that? Well, every day as I drive to the V.I.A. office, after I pass Ken Lum's East Van cross I look up at the mountain to see if that windmill is turning yet. The PR folks up there told me back in October that it would start turning "sometime in January" and as this month started to wind down I was worried that it might not happen but then this morning I look up and it's turning! It turns counterclockwise for what I assume is a scientific reason. Go outside and have a look, and if anybody who reads the site has access to a helicopter I think the most awesome thing you could do with your day would be to circle that thing with a video camera before the airspace gets locked down for the Games.
