Some non-news news

These fixtures are a big step forward compared to the city's thinking only a decade ago.  I hope we continue that trend by embracing the advances in the technology that make the warmer-colored, more inviting LEDs more practical and attractive.

Automatic dimming LED street lights are becoming a thing, and it looks like they are saving large amounts of electricity. That's power much better used in that Tesla, an actual positive thing for the environment. One could further well argue if any street lighting is needed at all given the apparent limited access nature of the road.

A bit off-topic, but geeks will be geeks.

As our infrastructure continues to age, power transmission lines will start getting a new look as they are eventually replaced.  Bixby is apparently in line for an upgrade to existing towers as AEP adds more capacity to accommodate circuits for the new Wind Catcher energy farm.

Its touted as being safer, with less Electromagnetic radiation emanating from the bundled cables, but it appears to have turned the man on the bicycle to the right into some sort if giraffe.

Some time ago I read that most of the wind farm energy was destined to be sold out of Oklahoma.  If true, how does this help me?

Same way a Canadian pipeline, going across the middle of the US, through Cushing to Houston, with oil being sold to China, helps you.   Except the wind energy farm hires more full time employees, and brings more capital expenditure to OK, so more tax revenue in the process....

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.
