Friday My Town Shoot Out: Power

This week's Friday My Town Shoot Out topic is Power, suggested by J9, She asked: “Power - where do you get your power? Is it electric, hydroelectric, solar, wind, natural gas? The things that power our towns or it could be things that empower you personally, or places to go to regroup, regenerate your own personal power.”



I cook and heat with natural gas. This is a natural gas compressor station owned by Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline. Although they don't work here, my son and son-in-law both work for the company.




I get my electricty from here.



Through here.



Maybe from here, or someplace just like it.



I think of power here at our county courthouse. They have the power to make us pay our taxes or lose our property. The county commissioners decide what services we will have and how much they will cost us.



There is power here.



This isn't power until you don't have it.






I get refreshed here every week to make me ready for the coming week.




This is powerful.



Powerful good!

Fun to see all the sources of "power" in your life. Many of them are familiar to me so was fun to see places I know too.

Enjoyed the post very much. It's good to see someone remember where our ultimate power comes from. Did you see your grandson in the Photo of the Week on the My Town blog?

I've been catching up on all your posts and admiring your fantastic photos. I just absolutely loved this post. Yes, there is power in money but the Bible and God's word is true power. How beautifully you wrote this.
