Permian basin of Texas


Cold this morning here in Midland.  The water line froze, I think it froze at the faucet from the Park, not sure because one heat tape was working on the inlet line and the other wasn’t.  I just went out and plugged it in to another receptacle and the light came on.  We will see if it thaws it out.  Needless to say it’s down right cool, but we will be headed out to El Paso as soon as we break camp and feed the driver.  Which is me. lol

Coming into this area yesterday I was impressed by the amount of wind turbines and huge wind turbine farms we saw in this area.  Huge amount of them.  I didn’t stop and get any pictures, but I should have.  I’ll try to remember to do that as we travel.

I”ll post more upon arrival in the pass of the north.

    Nice to hear from you. There’s no snow in El Paso?

    We’re supposed to get about a foot of the stuff today.

    yes, hope it is some place where it is warmer and stays warm.. The TAPE worm was given that name because it looks like a measuring tape. 🙂 Sometimes I feel like I have one. LOL Stay warm guys. I am beginning to think you brought all this cold weather to the lower 48 when you left Alaska.

    Aren’t those wind turbines neat? I love how they look when there are a lot together and they are all turning!
    I know you left North Texas to go to El Paso to get some warmer weather. I saw it was in the 60’s there.
    Our wind chill tonight is between -5 to +5. Brrrrrr! One squirrel is back on the feeder and I had two eating from the pation this morning along with the Doves.
