Wind Power - Human Power
Wind power and human power in the Netherlands: This photo is from today's online edition of the Dutch language newspaper de Telegraaf (telegraaf.nl). I am happy to leave my car at home when it is cold, windy, and ice is on the ground (sound familiar?) but I wish I could rig an iceboat or strap on my skates to get around as folks are doing in the Netherlands. After a skate I too would go for a traditional borrelje of jenever (a shot of Dutch gin) to warm up. If it is going to be cold, why not enjoy it and let the windmills do the work.
