Benedictine monk relaxing atop wind turbine spotted by drone

Posted: Updated:

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) - A Benedictine monk who works at a private Rhode Island school has discovered that finding solitude is no easy feat, even 175 feet in the air.
    
Brother Joseph Byron was recently relaxing atop the Portsmouth Abbey School's wind turbine - as he often does - when a drone zoomed in.
    
Video taken by the drone, owned by a Californian on vacation, shows Byron sprawled across the turbine's flat surface, with views of Narragansett Bay in the background. The footage was posted online this week.
    
Byron told the Providence Journal on Thursday he's now hearing from everyone on the planet.
    
He says seeing the drone was a little annoying since he climbs the turbine when he wants to be alone.
    
Byron has been climbing the turbine since its 2006 installation.

    Daytime highs for the interior valleys are backing off from triple digits on Monday. Temperatures for California Valley and Shandon will get close to 100 degrees on Monday, but right now daytime highs will range from the upper 80s to upper 90s. High pressure over the area is moving to the east, which is allowing for those interior valleys to cool down this week. However, with extremely dry live and dead fuel paired with gusty onshore winds, fire weather danger remains to be of concern...
