A lot of hot, powerful wind blows through Texas. Obviously, a lot of bad puns can be made at that wind’s expense, given the Lone Star state’s surplus of good ol’ boy governors and tongue-speaking preachers. But today, let us ignore the Rick Perry’s of the world and simply and peacefully celebrate that wind.

When it comes to wind power, almost nobody does it better. The state just broke the record for the amount of wind power ever generated there.
