|One new source of power,
beyond hydroelectric, is wind. West of Walla Walla is Stateline
wind project. Rotors seen on many ridge lines off in the distance
from Highway 12.
A gap in the line of customers at the supermarket allowed conversation with one Walla Walla clerk. He was a young Chinese looking person, studying physics at Whitman College.
We talked, a bit about my trip and I mentioned the wind turbines. He said he was more excited about new, safer, forms of nuclear power coming along. As population keeps growing, wind wouldn't be enough, he thought.
Just then more customers came to the line replacing our philosophical conversation with beeps from the bar code reader.
