Driving onward towards St. Louis we ran into more bad weather. Well, to say it was bad would be an understatement, actually. Heavy, heavy pelting rain, fog, attention-getting thunder and strike after strike of lightning, right on top of us I might add, beleaguered us for most of the last hour or so of our drive to meet with our good friend Dane. But, we made it and had a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable time at dinner. Luckily for us, we are going to be spending more time with Dane tomorrow morning as we tour a couple of local museums.

Not worth remembering:
The incredibly slo-o-o-ow Starbucks in Topeka, Kansas. When I asked if they had gone to Seattle to get our coffee, the little gal replied, "Oh, don't worry; it was made with love!" Alrighty then. (Serves me right for being sarcastic, I suppose!)
