Wife On The Wind Turbine

To get to where my wife Jen is standing in the nacelle, she had to climb 80 meters straight up, using the ladders inside wind turbine tower.  The heat index in South Texas that day was over 105 degrees, maybe more inside the tower.  It definitely isn’t for the faint hearted, but still is far better than working in a coal plant-check out those views. When the nacelle doors are opened to the sky, it’s a beautiful place to work. I hope one day all of our rural communities would have the option of climbing up wind turbines instead of down coal mines.
