Oh No... a blizzard?

We decided to meet at work which is a 15 minute drive for me. Usually in the morning I set my alarm to go off a half hour before I actually get out of bed and I push snooze the whole time... so needless to say if you textmessage me early I won't get it until last minute... which is what happened today. Matt, the one guy who went with us, found this out the first month I was here and I scheduled a training in the Morning that was required for all my employees... he wanted to know if he could wear casual clothes or if he had to wear a uniform... I got the text at 9:30AM and the training was at 10. I called him... he was like, uhh... I sent that to you an hour ago... did you just wake up. Yeah.. he was astounded.
Well, I woke up and looked at my phone.
I got to the parking lot of where we were meeting and I knew matt might be a little late... he had to get his brother on the school bus.
Now the funny thing is is that Kyle's the one who wanted to do this. He is the one who initiated it and is the one who wanted to go to Sonic on the way and would do anything to go there (otherwise we would've drove to Madison, WI which is an hour closer but no Sonic on the way).
So by the time we got to Iowa there was no snow on the ground. The one thing I wanted to do was drive back roads... if you read about my day blog to Buffalo, NY to get chicken wings (the original place that made them) we went a back road and saw some fun stuff. But with the distance it was away that would've taken us twice as long. But there were some interesting things to see... like a water tower with a smiley face on it... a Harley Davidson Store which was built in a Barn! I wanted a photo of the harley shop but we didn't have time to stop and on the way back there was a median wall blocking me from it!!!
Driving through Iowa is very serene but sort of boring... maybe I'll find a different route next time and it'll be a better adventure! I'll just go without a destination!
