Regardless of weather condition, an empty McDonald's parking lot is always preferable to a parking lot full of McDonald's customers.

To enjoy this you have to set aside your natural suspicions of local governments in the rural areas of the U.S., riddled as they are with corrupt good-old-boys' networks and lawless cops, etc. Just think about the architecture.

This was from a bus in Kansas City, and thanks to this lucky shot I've been able to study the building since the bus trip.

There is a Home Depot directly behind it, and a Costco in the distance at the left. Interesting place!
