About Me

old. Boring. Too complacent to realize my full potential.

Currently on vacation

in Colorado. First time here. Beautiful place. We are up in the mountains among a TON of snow with more on the way soon. Anyway, we live right outside Houston and drove straight up into Wichita, Kansas where we stayed overnight before continuing on into Colorado. Let me just say, holy cow! Driving from Wichita into Colorado seemed to take FOREVER! I'm serious, that half of Kansas felt like it was larger than Texas. I'm guessing it's because there is not a lot to see except flat land. Houses were extremely few and far between. I commented to my wife and daughter that I felt like we were stuck in some sort of time loop, that we would never make it out of Kansas. Now, I hope I'm not coming off as rude, as I'm not trying to be. I was just not aware that there was so much empty space!
I do have to say, however, that I was absolutely shocked at the massive wind farms that are located in Kansas. It actually made me happy and excited to see this. I don't know, I just didn't expect to see these towering windmills by the hundreds upon hundreds planted on huge swaths of land in a red state. I guess I've just been naive. It just seems legislators from these red areas act like they hate the thought of renewable energy, but yet there it is, all over Kansas.
Seeing this gave me a glimmer of hope that maybe things are moving in the right direction, albeit very slowly. Way to go Kansas.
