    It certainly does not look like traffic was a factor.:)

    The article said the traffic was so light it's "almost empty."

    It also mentioned that most drivers tend to ignore traffic lights in this region!

    Are those windmills and solar panels on all those poles in the background? That's curious.

    I didn't even notice. Thanks for sharing your observation. That's great to use wind and sun to reduce the coal powered plant usage!

    It's interesting the different approaches to wind and solar electricity generation, whether to go huge like the giant wind turbines I see along the Columbia River Gorge in eastern Oregon, or the little "fans" at the top of those poles in the picture in China. I guess as long as the numbers pencil out....

    Bigger fans may be an overkill because the idea is to light up a light bulb, not to charge a Tesla!
