and the wind is such as i have never known. even coming from boulder.
Meredith: iowa has crazy wind. its nuts. be ready. it's insane. i'm rootin' for ya. ;-) at least it will be warmer when you're here....
that black floating chaos ... is a flock of birds. we seem to be crossing a migration of some sort. very beautiful. they MUST be cold. they're flying INTO the wind for some crazy reason.
why does driving across the county seem so exhausting? i haven't been this tired since... might be the motion sickness. i can't ride as a passenger to save my life, especially in the backseat.
driving was tribute to grandma, who NEVER flew, didn't like to fly, and who hated to travel anywhere but Arizona. her husband, an air force pilot, felt differently. i can't count the times that she drove this very route to be with family.
today will be a big day.
