    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.

    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.
