Iowa 80

After we delivered in Cedar Rapids we drove back to Iowa 80. It is the world's largest truckstop. We needed to shower and do some laundry along with a few minor repairs.
On our way there we got into a horrible blizzard. Visibility was terrible. Traffic pretty much came to a standstill. I was so glad to get to the truckstop.
We were offered a trip picking up the next day and going to Detroit, so that gave us time to get done what needed done.

Pops fell on the ice when he walked to the garage to see if they could get us in to be fixed. He didn't get hurt. Thank God.

These old trucks are inside the truckstop in Iowa. Next door is a truck museum. We didn't go over but told ourselves that we will next time.

I won't get out and walk anywhere after dark, especially at a place as big as this one.

Our delivery morning had a gorgeous sunrise.

And Lucy finally got a chance to get out of the truck and run. She had been longing to do that.

We have another trip lined up but it doesn't pick up until tomorrow in Detroit. So we are enjoying a quiet relaxing day. I cleaned the truck and restocked our supplies. I have a meatloaf in the crockpot. We really wanted to get home this weekend (it has been sooooo long), but such is life.
Pops checked the weather for Greer, SC, it should be warm and snowless. Yippee!!!
But I bet we don't stay there long. I wouldn't be surprised if we get a load offer before we even get there. Oh well.
