Back before the company I work for went bankrupt, was sold/restructured, and moved our offices to the suburbs, we worked in one of the most famous buildings in downtown Minneapolis. Said building...
(seen here on a dark and stormy night, reflecting Spook Central across the street)
... had an underground parking ramp in which all company employees could park for free. Until I started taking the bus to work, free downtown parking was one of my favorite things about working there, plus it meant my car never, ever got cold nor did I have to walk to my car in the dark. It was an unbelievably nice perk. However, we moved to the suburbs, so not only can I no longer take the bus to my office, but I now also have to park outside. With occasional less than ideal results. Poor Chad. :-(
Here's the thing though - our new building does have underground parking available, just in very limited quantities relative to the amount of office space/employees in the building. My company finally decided to spring for a few parking spots down there and they rotate among the employees on a 3 week cycle. This is my week:
Everyone, please meet Desmond, Chad's younger, cooler sibling.
Today's weather did not make indoor parking a necessity but it was still pretty nice when I was walking out to my car in the dark. Which apparently now happens at 4:30pm? We're definitely domed. On the other hand, it almost got up to 60 today, in November, so dome is still a little ways off, I think.
Calvin seems unfazed:
