The only good thing about Iowa is Luther College, and that’s basically in Minnesota. Iowa is a terrible place. Terrible.
A friend of mine is getting married tomorrow in the Twin Cities, and I was going to drive up from Lawrence today. I almost got to Des Moines when the serious fog rolled in. North of Des Moines, I couldn’t see more than 100 feet in front of me. For far too much of it, I could see a maximum of three stripes on the highway. I was excited when I could see the taillights of the car in front of the car in front of me.
Decided I couldn’t keep going, so I pulled off in Story City. And now I’m bitter towards Iowa. It’s supposed to sleet tomorrow morning. Can’t wait to drive in it.
