Thirty minutes later they let us all back inside, but the strobes kept going off for another solid hour. Mind you, I'm not epileptic, but it'll still mess with you. I grab another beer, the rest of my reuben from lunch, and go outside. I eat my leftovers, go throw away the container, and as I'm walking back to my truck I hear, "excuse me, sir!". There's a fully naked woman standing there, over explaining how she was locked out of her room, asking me for a towel, etc...
Hell I thought you might ask her in for a drink.I gave yall a picture of the firetruck. You think I was about to take a selfie with some random, naked, woman in the parking lot of a Holiday Inn?!
Damn...I probably should have. I feel like that would have been normal behavior for Florida.
Des Moines, Iowa
Work trip started today and so did Winter
All the towns have some sort of colorful festival inthe spring, trying to relieve the winter depression of zero color and scenery.Iowa in winter is the suck. I had to go there for training when I worked for Pella. Flew into negative 20 degree weather and they had just had 3 feet of snow. Fortunately, they had a local person pick us up from the airport because there were no rental cars. Snow packed back roads got us from Des Moines (which I believe is French for "The Worst Ass Pounding we can stuff into a Planet") to Pella, Iowa. After having grown up in Michigan, I was familiar with cold and snow, but the lack of trees, hills or literally any scenery made the trip a sort of post-apocalyptic nuclear winter landscape with only the occasional sign to let us know we were still actually on a road and not blasting across frozen tundra or a glacier. Didn't see a cow the whole trip, but literally smelled them every time we stepped foot outside.
On a bright note, I had to go back for followup training later in the year and was there for tulip festival. Tulips are a big deal there and it's even illegal to pick or damage one. My boss got a picture with him "teeing off" on one since he brought his clubs. No actual flowers were harmed in the filming of this picture.
