This is a functioning oil well--for those of you who haven't seen one.
And this is what it looks like when they're digging an oil well.
The Hubby tells me this is natural gas they're burning off, and he read recently that they're trying to find a way to use the energy instead of simply burning it. That would be good.
And then there are the people, the many, many people who have flocked to ND to work in fields. There are no places to live, so they've created temporary housing affectionately called Man Camps. Not a pleasant way to live, but surely there's a book or two lurking in a Man Camp. *Grin*
But North Dakota isn't JUST about oil. No, we grow wheat here, too. And other stuff.
And there are wild flowers.
Notice I'm not commenting on the snow. The ice. Or the bitter wind.
Hope you enjoyed this brief look at my home. Does it look anything like where you live? And about those Man Camps...any good story lines come to mind?
