    It will probably take a lot longer than you think it will. Maybe now that rush hour is over there will be less traffic, but between the traffic and the interstate still being pretty icepacked and the dark, I'd double the time you'd expect it to take.

    I'm glad to be home for the night. It wasn't the funnest time getting from downtown to the Jordan Creek area at 3:30.

    Wife and I just past Atlantic on our way to Omaha from DSM. It's taken us a little over 2 hours. Have counted 45 vehicles in the ditches.

    Tell me about it. Our final destination really isn't Omaha, but I don't want to type where we are really heading. I feel dirty.

    Re: Midweek snow storm

    Lincoln? You should, but it's Christmas


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    I80 wasn't too bad. The first 20 miles out of west Des Moines sucked but after that not too bad. Stay in the left lane. Took me an hour longer than normal

    Looks like going to Creston tomorrow won't be too bad once south of Des Moines. Anyone else going to creston for Christmas and the peewee wrestling tournament?
