I pulled into my mom's garage just after 3 this afternoon. My strategy to head north paid off as I lost the rain at the MO-IA border and actually saw the Sun for a few seconds east of Des Moines. Traffic was a little heavier and of course it was insane in Chicago. I was doing 70 in a 55 zone and chuckled as I was passed by a state trooper whom nobody was paying attention to. I'm just kicking back now. There is a welcomed new addition to my mom's house. One of the neighbors now has an unsecured wi-fi network! Badda Bing!
