As we drove further north we spotted some giant windmills in the distance and detoured to see them up close. I didn't want to miss this sight. I hear they stand 2-- feet tall. Every day in Houston I would see large trucks hauling the vanes, one per truck, out of the city. They are so long the trucks need special escort.
After a ten mile one way detour for a few pix I realized we were perilously close to being low on fuel, maybe a quarter tank.
The ironic thing is that we squeaked into Sweetwater, Texas and fueled up but the 15 miles to Sweetwater and the 30 miles after were nothing but a panarama of windmills. No need to detour!
They sell this energy through 'green' providers for those who like even higher electric bills!
