A Few Days' Difference

Last Thursday, we had wet, slushy, snowy precipitation making my drive to/from the University of Iowa a mess. The wind alone would've been bad enough. But Mother Nature was dumping the slick stuff on us like crazy.

Of course, after driving about 70-80 minutes (normally about 45 minutes), I got to the parking garage. And the moment I pulled up to the parking garage's gate (maybe 10 seconds from my pushing the ticket dispenser button enabling the gate to go up), what happened?
Yep, the "FULL" sign lit up. That means the ticket dispenser won't dispense a ticket, meaning the gate's arm won't go up. As I sat there for a few minutes, wondering if I should find a parking meter somewhere (meaning I'd have to splash around in cold gunk in my sneakers), the "FULL" light went off! Yipee! I only had to wait about 5 minutes.

Of course, today was a different story, thankfully. Another sunny day on the University of Iowa's campus in Iowa City. It was definitely a nice day to walk around.
