While on the Road -- #1

While on the road I noticed that the state of Iowa had an inordinate number of wind turbines along interstate 80; the other states along the way did not. Most were rhythmically whirling and only a few were stationery.  Had to laugh because newspapers in Minnesota had just announced that the turbines in small communities close to the Twin Cities were not operating because they had been frozen by the winter wind and temperatures. A very good time to leave for more hospitable climates!

  2. One long, long row of windmills lined the horizon in Oklahoma. They were in constant motion.
