So...I'm driving down a major road in our town, and I see something looming in the sky. It seems to be at least a mile away. What is that? Could it be...? No. Jack and the Beanstalk?
Was it there yesterday? How could I have missed it? Has it been that long since I've been down this road?
Apparently our city leaders feel that the new cell tower was disruptive to the natural beauty of this fine area. (I'm sure they discussed this on their cell phones which were now getting much improved reception.)
This is all I'm asking...
Is this necessary?
Do we think this blends in better than the actual cell tower?
I mean, really, you hardly notice it. I only almost ran off the road and then rear ended the car in front of me. Not distracting at all.
Just take a minute. Digest the photo. Let it really sink in.
You'll notice the tall light pole. The power lines. The altitude of the other trees...what? The other trees? I mean, THE TREES.
Do we now live in Redwood National Park? Are we channeling the Giant Sequoyah?
What in the world were they thinking? It is a cell tower, people. A cell tower. No amount of brown paint and, um, fake branches can make it not a cell tower. It just makes it a stupid brown cell tower with fake leaves.
Less is more. Always.
