Unhappy No more ice cream...

Here's what happened to our local Dairy Queen today. No one has a clue as to why yet. I'm pretty sure this DQ was locally owned, and out here it's mostly the family who owns it works there. Usually in the summer a bunch of high school and college kids work there. They said the restaurant wasn't open yet for the day and there was no one in the building. The neighbor called 911 when she saw the smoke - who knows by then how long it had been burning.

DQ is awesome, I love their burgers.. like the mushroom swiss bacon thing. Greasy though. Insurance will most likely cover it, and they will rebuild. =)

Our Sonic was burned down early in spring. It's almost done, I think. Just the inside left to finish, and the details. Someone stole like $300, and set the building on fire. $250,000 in damages. Luckilly we have a drug store downtown that sells icecream for $.75 for a scoop in a cone, which is like one small scoop in the bottom, and one large one on top. A lot cheaper than Sonic. We had tons of people come in and get ice cream bars at BP.

At least it's not summer. That sucks when it's 100 out, and there's no ice cream to eat.
