well, I spent 90% of this day driving around Ames trying to figure out how the hell to A) get across town and then B) get out of town to Des Moines.
As it turns out, apparently I’m living on the island of Ames.
After driving around for nearly 3 hours, I decided it would be better just to go home and work.
So, this is why I couldn’t get out of town …
Red means roads are closed. Basically, I was landlocked. I did manage to get across town and to where I was hoping to get OUT of town, but that road was also closed. Due to construction. Of course. Thanks, construction.
