5:45 AM. It is Sunday morning. Sleep “annoyance” was a big thing last night. I was woke up by the turbines at 12:53, 1:54, 3:24, 4:56 and 5:45. At 5:45 I got up because I could sleep no more.
7:05 AM, Wind NE, 10.9 rpms. Low speed motor noise. Even at slow speed the turbine’s low frequency noise or what ever power it is they have, does it’s damage on my body. My ear crackling or hissing has been prevalent for about 3 weeks worse than usual. The volume is getting louder and more noticeable.
5:10 AM. It was the usual sleep deprivation night last night. I’m being woke up earlier and earlier. Last night I wrote down 11:43, 3:45, and 4:15. There were more wake ups I just did not write down. After 4:15 I don’t think I slept. I got up just before 5:00 AM.
5:15 PM. The turbines were turning slow and at time off today.
9:10 PM. Wind SE, 11:0 rpms Just a motor grinding noise. My chest pains were noticeable all day and into the evening.
5:00 PM. There was strong winds all day and rain mid afternoon. The turbine noise was filling the air, but was masked partially by the wind and rain.
There was more going on the last three days as far as wind turbine noise and low frequency noise. I just did not feel like writing. You can not imagine how the constant sound affects and controls the mind and body.
5:40 AM. I was woke up 5 or 6 times earlier in the night last night. The time I wrote down were 12:45, 1:45, 2:02 and 2:57. There were other times not written down. It is extremely rare to have a dream her in the wind factory. I id have a very short dream last night. An odd dream. All it was is that I jumped off a trailer or truck with 2 dozen eggs in my hands. I dropped both cartoons and they all broke. End of dream.
9:40 PM. Wind NW, 16.7 rpms. Turbines 4 and 6 noise is like that of a jet flying over. It has been very windy all day. Now the wind is more calm. The wind covered much of the turbine noise today, yet I felt nauseated at time and I hear crackling in my ears. This crackling is getting worse and generally constant rather than occasional.
5:05 AM. It is Sunday morning. Most people would be “sleeping in”. Not in the sleep deprivation wind factory by Invenergy. I was woke up at 11:45 which also included a head-ache. I don’t ever remember waking up during the night with a headache. I was woke up gain at 1:12, 2:14, 4:03, 4:46 AND 4:59. At 4:59 I could no long sleep and had a headache. My ears have been crackling or sounding like a poorly tuned in AM radio for about a week. From this I get very irritated or stressed by sounds like a potato chip bag being crunched, coughing and other similar daily sounds such as dishes hitting together or a newspaper rustling. Yes, I feel this from the constant bombarding of low frequency noise from the turbines placed too close to our house.
10:45 PM. Wind S, 18.2 rpms. calm. There is jet noise and thumping and pounding noise filling the air. I easily hear turbines 4, 73 and 74a.
Last night was filled with sleep deprivation. I was woke by the turbine first at 11:55, then 1:11, 2:30, 4:25, and 5:05. There were more wake ups, but not written down. After 5:05 I could no longer sleep.
6:20 PM Wind SE, 18 rpms. Jet noise from turbine 4.
9:05 PM. Wind SE, 18. rpms. Close to jet noise.
10:30 PM I hear turbine 73 thumping and pounding from inside the house.
6:00 AM. I slept better last night for most of the night being woke up about 3 times.
2:05 PM. Wind ?.Turbines are pointed in various directions. That is why the ?. One can not tell wind direction from the turbines because they are pointed a many directions. Wind calm. 9.3 rpms. This blade rotation speed is well under production speed. It would be a good speed for a TV commercial on wind energy. Isn’t that what we see on TV? Slow turning turbines in front of a beautiful grain field. Where are the fast turning turbines 1000 feet from a home?
2:20 PM. Wind NE? 6.2 rpms. This again is well below production speed.
2:55 PM. Wind NE, 6 rpms. We are paying for this none production blade motion.
9:45 PM Wind E. Jet noise. Very loud for a wind from the east.
4:50 AM. Sleep was a little better last night only being woke up 3 or 4 times.
7:15 PM I was gone all day. When I was 15 miles west of home I could see the turbines were not turning. As I got out of the car I felt good. In other words there is a different feeling in the air when the turbines are stopped vs. when they are turning.
8:15 PM I walked out of the house and felt different (negative). Without looking or hearing I knew the turbines were turning. My body could feel it. I looked to turbine 4. Sure enough it and the others were indeed turning. I did have fairly strong chest pains earlier today.
5:25 AM. It was a horrible night of sleep deprivation. I was woke up 8 to 10 times. If I don’t write the time down I find my estimate of wake ups by the turbines are low. In other words I think I am woke up 3 or 4 times each night. When I actually write each wake up down I find I am woke up 8 to 10 times.
5:40 AM. Wind NW, 18.4 rpms. Turbine 4 noise is like a jet flying over. Turbine 3a is the same jet noise. It is unusual to pick 3a out from turbine 4 because they are so close to one another. I am extremely tired from last night’s sleep deprivation.
10:10 PM. Wind NW, 16.4 rpms. Loud mother hum to a jet noise from turbines 4 and 6.
5:40 AM. There was lots of sleep deprivation last night despite fairly low wind speed. Often it is that way. The more calm the air and less ambient sound there is the more the ill affects of the turbines are felt. The times I wrote down are 1;22, 2:21, 3:12, 4:55 and 5:16. I could no longer sleep after 5:16. It is Saturday. Many people would “sleep in” on a Saturday, especially being Easter weekend. It is not possible in this Invenergy project. I feel exhausted and have a deep down inside headache.
5:25 AM. I was woke up many time by the turbines. I wrote down 4 of them and tried to get back to sleep with out looking at the clock the other times I was woke up. I wrote 12:05, 12:56, 4:03 and 5:09. After 5:09 I no longer could sleep.
9:10 AM. Wind E, 10.9 rpms. Just a whooshing noise.at this time
5:10 AM (alarm set for 6:00 AM). Because of the turbine noise and low frequency noise I do not need the alarm at home. Sleep was mixed last night. I was only woke up 3 or 4 y the turbines vs. a typical night of 7 or 8 wake ups. I find it interesting that a woman at Clintonville, WI used the term sleep deprivation because she was woke up several nights by loud sounds that were later diagnosed as a 1.5 earthquake. Sleep deprivation is every night here in the Forward wind factory erected by Invenergy and no one cares. We are expected to endure this.
