I lived in Overland Park for just under six months as a young lad, before my father relocated to southern California, joining Occidental Petroleum in Irvine. They had a really cool rounded-edge building facing the John Wayne Airport. Western Digital had a cool new building next door.
Kansas was really fun back then. Being close to Kansas City, I learned really fast about barbecue and the awesome varieties of meat available. Kansas had three basic forms of weather: hot, cold, or windy, various combinations of the above.
