stuck in Story City

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.
