As much as I love living in the city, sometimes ya just gotta drive out of there, and today was one of those days. My car said "go East, young man" and I'm currently having a mid-afternoon cup of coffee in downtown Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, a town of 13,000 souls about an hour and a half out of the Twin Cities. I'm pretty sure I've never been here before, and it's sort of cute, in a Wisconsin sort of way.
I don't know of any famous people from Chippewa Falls, but quick! can you name two famous fictional characters from here? The quick answer: Jack Dawson, the Leonardo deCaprio character in Titanic; and Annie Hall, the Diane Keaton role in Annie Hall.
That's it for today. Back on the road.
