Road Iowa

 CLICK ON PICTURES TO ENLARGE!!
It was a frosty morning departing at 4:00AM, -11 degrees, 740 miles today.



I've been seeing these wind turbine propellers on semis the past few weeks. Traveled past a wind farm in Iowa on Thursday and the props were really spinning with the winds.

It was a solid 740 miles of driving on Thursday, along with 800 miles on Tuesday. I saw of farmland and assortment of semis this week, roads were the driest of the winter.

Nebraska Road Storm


These were some of the smaller drifts. Hit some 3 - 5 foot high drifts that engulfed the truck. The F350 4x4 I'm driving just pounded through, just kept on the gas and the wheel straight.

Nebraska / Colder Than a... -11 @ -35 Windchill

Sunrise in flat farming country at -11 degrees and a north wind with fresh snow. Gotta keep alert.
Truck had just slid off in front of me. If you hit the ditch it's best to keep the steering wheel straight and don't hit the brakes. He will just need to be towed right out. If a driver turns the wheel and hits the brakes, there is a good chance of flipping the rig or jackknifing, that would be much worse.
It is slick and icy in the right lane, but as you know the left lane is waiting to suck a careless car or truck into the ditch. This car must have just gone in because I could see the driver on his cell phone, probably calling for a tow.
 
 Small town Nebraska after a winter storm, it had warmed up to -1 degrees by 9:30AM.
Leaving the Nebraska town and crossing back over the Missouri River. 360 miles to home, 720 miles today, this was a full day starting at 1:00AM and back home enjoying a cold drink by 7:30PM the same day.
I arrived home and Weez had spent all day getting our new place in shape and our apartment looked great. The apartment is really getting comfortable and it feels like Home.
GOOD TIMES!!
