When You Own A Bunch Of Windmills...

...you're going to have to climb up them now and again. It's an unfortunate fact of modern life that mechanical devices require routine maintainance and occasional repair. Windmills are no exception. In this particular instance, one of the rubber gromets that hold the windmills in place on their masts had worked it way loose and tumbled to the ground. The windmill was thus held in place only by gravity and its wiring, forcing me to strap on my safety gear, attach a ladder, and climb 30 feet into the air to reattach it.

Yes, it's as sketchy and dangerous as it looks.
