Old is New, yet again
I was struck by the change in the landscape through the years of my absence. While I am well aware that Texas windmills have become few and far between, and that this old method of utilizing wind for power was left behind to rust - leaving snaggle-tooth skeletons, I didn't expect this .
I expected a few wind turbines, but there were miles and miles of fields - filled with rows and rows- as far as the eye could see. I guess, sometimes returning to the old ways work after all!
Here's another old method - Texas Oil Wells - I just had to post these since people always ask me if we, Texans, have oil wells in our back yards. Well, yes, some actually do!
