Read the Wisconsin in the winter cities. I guess I had blacked out Edmonton CA in the winter.

Trivia fact, At 40 below you don’t have to say Celsius or Fahrenheit because it’s the same. That was the high some days in Feb.

40 below anywhere in the continental US is such an anomaly.

Oklahoma City. Experienced earthquakes almost daily (due to fracking though they deny it), tornados, snow storm, and to top it off an active shooter situation at the office which was NOT a drill (turned out to be false alarm but the experience was real)

Houston, TX

Went here for a week and could barely be polite to my local colleagues, it’s a glorified office park and founded on arguably the world’s worst industry. Also, it’s hot and humid but not on the beach? What’s the point?

Wilmington, DE. One of the murder capitals of the US! Better yet, I was completely alone! Terrible memories

18 months there! Just so surprisingly and overwhelmingly sketchy.

San Francisco. It’s a sad NYC. Everything’s closed at 8PM.

Jersey. All of it. Throw the whole state away.

You obviously haven’t been to the south jersey for the beaches, tasted the amazing south jersey sweet corn and tomatoes. South Jersey has some of the best farmland. I’m down to throw the rest of the state away!

This post makes me feel so much better about life. Never had a catastrophically bad client city in 10 years of work.

St Louis

Has a reputation for major street crime, and the “bad areas” are apparently next to the areas that we consultants normally stay. So these days, no issue - silver lining of covid-19.

Never met a city I didn’t like!
