I have been humming tunes from the musical "Oklahoma" for the past few days. I especially enjoy the line from the song, "Oklahoma" about "wind sweeping ore the plains." I would like to add that the wind sweeps ore the truck, ore your awning, and ore your RV slides which can make you feel seasick.
I could not really capture in a photo the true force of "sweeping ore" we have experienced.
In the photo of our picnic shelter you can barely discern our outdoor rug, which is weighted down to keep it from traveling ore the plains as it dries out from the much-needed rainstorm.
We are in a great spot for birding, bike riding, running, and enjoying the outdoors. Each activity includes the added bonus/challenge of - wind sweeping ore. We are enjoying our week just outside of Lawton, Oklahoma. It has been warm and sunny our windows are open and everything is getting a nice clean sweep! We look forward to meeting everyone at St. John this weekend. Pastor Bill and Barb Schneider have been more than gracious hosts. If you ever find yourself in Lawton, Oklahoma, stop in for a visit you will be warmly received.
I just checked the lyrics... "the wind comes sweeping DOWN the plains. I think "ore" sounds better, but it is not my song.
We love our campsite just outside Lawton, Oklahoma
The white caps should be called wind caps!
About two hours after I took these photos the wind calmed and the water was like glass. I love this place. On Sunday, we had severe wind warnings. I still like it here.
