This is the view from my living room window. In the upper left of the photo is my curtain. Is that the ugliest thing you've ever seen or what?
This is the view from my front yard. Anyone know where I can buy a 200 ft tall tree?
This is a close-up. It's less than 500 feet from my property line. As you can see, we used to have a beautiful view of the mountains. No more. We can now clearly see this ugly monstrosity. My plan? Hope that an earthquake opens a big hole and swallows up this tower. Or, lightning strikes it and it disintegrates. Other than that, we'll be planting trees to block the view. I love the mountains, but I'd much rather see trees than that cell phone tower. With a little planning, it could have been placed in a less conspicuous place. The area where I live likes to brag that it values natural beauty. I guess that doesn't apply at my house.
I did write a letter to the editor of my local paper, but I'm sure it won't do any good. After all, money makes the world go round and Alltel/AT&T have planty of that to steamroller an insignificant homeowner like me.
