Almeria wins the windiest area in Spain award for today

The biggest gust of wind in Spain today appears to have been in Almeria, where we had one of 140kph.

Talking of which, why is Spain boasting that today they have had their biggest ever production of electricity by wind generators thanks to the powerful gusts, while the UK always seems to shut them down as soon as there’s a gust of wind?

  1. I’ve just driven down from Madrid. It was pretty windy. There are hundreds of those baleful wind generators in Albacete (PSOE) and… almost none of them were moving! Presumably turned off? Politicians huh? Can’t live with them, can’t live without them (or, was that something else?).
