Here I am in lovely Kansas City, home of humidity and slightly hard water (which would I rather take a shower in, glacier water or river water? I'll give you three guesses). But actually, it's not that bad. It's a little strange to see clouds, and the water in Wisconsin's way worse (you can actually watch the water settle there).
But friends are here! That's really what matters, isn't it?
Anyway, made the drive in a leisurely 8.5 hours (there was no one going faster than me -- not one person to follow. It was insane. Plus, made some concession to fuel economy, which for the record was really pretty good, considering how I usually drive). But made it I did.
