Well, Rock Rapids, IA, was all that I expected it to be.
-25F on Thursday morning as I drove to work. That’s degrees. Below zero.
Wind chill…I didn’t even want to know what the wind chill was.
Only about 4-6 inches…but the drifts across the roads…oh my.
It is most definitely NOT a big city. Not even a small suburb.
There was a Pizza Hut and a Subway. Oh, and a grocery store called Sunshine Foods with a deli serving "Taco Tuesdays". I had a chicken salad croisant.
I didn’t see all 17 of them, but the ones I saw were…um…well, interesting! In all honesty, a couple of them actually were interesting.
But despite Rock Rapids not exactly being my "cup of tea", I had a wonderful week. I stayed with a good friend and worked with a GREAT group of people at Alpha Omega Publications. The project is not completely done, so blogging is still on a back burner. But don’t worry. I haven’t completely removed it from the stove!
And when AOP’s new website is launched in the spring there will be a contest on my blog. So stay tuned.
Thanks for hanging in there with me! I hope to visit lots of blogs over the next few days and try to catch up!
