Next stop, Roswell: Ogallala, Nebraska's Alien Water Tower




I love gazing and taking pictures of water towers on long road trips. They break up the monotony, especially in the Midwest where the landscape is flat. I've often thought they look like aliens on the horizon, like in "War of the Worlds." Apparently, the folks in Ogallala, Nebraska had this same notion, as they have painted one of their towers to look like a alien spacecraft. Nice to have a bit of whimsy in an otherwise plain landscape. You've really made the grade and the papers want to know whose shirts you wear.

I love water towers too. I wish more communities would 'art' up their water towers with more than just the usual high school mascot.

elf: I'm considering doing a water tower blog. Perhaps that's a cry for help...

Ooooo, a water tower blog. I would so be in on that. Alas, I have but one pic of a water tower. Though I adore them, I don't usually stop to take a pic. I usually regret passing them by. For starters, there is a wt in Luling, TX painted like a watermelon just begging for blog fame. If you start it up and need a recruit, I'm there.
