    Well, This Sucks (Blizzard of Jan. 2014)

    I'm currently sitting in a parking lot in Jordan Creek, and I need to get to Ottumwa sometime tonight. (work tomorrow) Every single county I need to drive through is under this blizzard warning. I could get to Johnston and ride this out with my in-laws, but the only way I know 100% is taking the interstate to Merle Hay.

    Time to pull out the map to save up on phone battery.

    Just stay in Scheels. They have tents AND smokers.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Crazy how fast this blew in, I got on I80 at Jordan Creek about 3:30 and by Douglas Ave the road was covered in snow and its as tough to see 4 or 5 cars out in front of you. This storm had perfect timing to make rush hour crazy.

    This thing came out of nowhere. I got home about an hour ago and at times driving from Des Moines to Ames, I couldn't see anything but the back end of the car in front of me.
