Yes, I knew it was an oil rig, but I had to look twice. I made the "Eiffel Tower" comment to see if anyone else saw the resemblance.Actually, the "eiffel tower" is a drilling rig. They are drilling for oil. That's what lends believability to the picture. Tornado alley is also where the oil fields are numerous.
However, if you will look at the flags at the base of the rig, you will notice they are limp. Also, take note of the dust on the left side of the picture, its rising, but there is no wind blowing it around. And lastly, if you know tornadoes, AND the West Texas area, you will know that the air would not be that free of dust with a tornado as close as the picture implies.
Dont feel too bad, though. My son, born and raised around West Texas was fooled, too!
I think they should have put the Eiffel Tower in there.Yes, I knew it was an oil rig, but I had to look twice. I made the "Eiffel Tower" comment to see if anyone else saw the resemblance.
Oh, none taken. I am sometimes too vague with sarcasm.Ah! I see! Sorry, no offense was meant. We have those drilling rigs all over the place around here. Pretty commonplace.
Grasshoppers? May I see a photo?I haven't really seen many drilling rigs in my area but we have those oil pumps that remind me of grasshoppers.
