    The wind farms in Eastern Washington have been a real boon to the wheat farmers there. It has flattened the normal cylclic income, so now in good years they have a surplus, and in bad years, break even because of the extra income from the turbines. When asked if he had any complaints about the five turbines on his property, one farmer replied " Well, yes. Why don't they put ten more on my farm!"
