Things I learned today:
1) Big Freaking Universities come with big freaking traffic jams.
2) Lowe's is on the other side of a Big Freaking University from here.
3) This town (which sits adjacent to the town in which resides the Big Freaking University) has only 20,000 (or so) residents. Asheville has upwards of 100,000. (That may be the total for the urban area and not just the town. I can't be arsed to check right now.)
4) Ummm, I guess that's all.
