Over the past several months there have been some changes to the landscape in this neck of the woods. Apparently, they have found pockets of natural gas in the area and have started drilling in the neighborhood. I love where I live. I’m close to a big city but I feel like I live way out in the country. I’m in a cute little neighborhood with sidewalks and kids out playing in each other’s yards. I get to look out my windows and see open fields farmland and cows grazing. Now I get to drive past this everyday.
It was sad to watch the trucks come in and start moving the land around. Every day there are more trucks and trailers and large pieces of equipment making their home in my neighborhood. I know the people who farmed that land made good deals and are reaping some kind of benefit from this. I know it’s a good thing to find a resource in our own country. I still wonder if all this change is good. We can hear the drilling.
There’s another drill just over this hillside.
And one just over this one too.
This drill site is just down the road from me. The people that live close to this one complained enough that they built a wall to help reduce to noise. At night sometimes you can see the flame from the burn off. (I wish I knew the purpose of that)
Change is inevitable. Is change a good thing???
How do you deal with change???
