Long Description:
We couldn't help noticing all the wind mills as we were making our way west.

Finally we came upon this dedication to Oklahoma's wind farm in front of the town hall. Leona picked plums from a tree with the town employee who planted the tree.

Located on more than 5,000 acres near Weatherford in Custer and Washita Counties,Oklahoma, the 98 wind turbines produce up to 147 megawatts of electricity. That’s enough electricity for more than 44,000 homes.

The plums were nice, but I'd rather have one of the wind mills.
