From Rapids City
This morning it was 7 when I woke up. That’s both Fahrenheit and am. It was also snowy and windy. This time last year I was in Fargo and it was in the fifties until the last day when the weather was still just a bit warmer. London should be downright balmy next week.
Right now I’m having dinner at the Firehouse Brewery. The BBQ Buffalo Brisket is fairly good but it tastes just like a beef brisket. Maybe it is or maybe the sauce just masks the taste. It seems like nearly all cuisine in this part of the country is covered in sauce. Gravy or cheese sauce or club sauce. It’s good at making mediocre cooking more flavorful. Their smoke jumper stout is better and isn’t covered in sauce of any kind.
If I get the time later I’m going to head to Mount Rushmore and take some photos at night. Then I get on a plane to head back to Atlanta for a day or so. I think I spend more time traveling from here to Atlanta than from Atlanta to London due to the fact that there are no direct flights.
