JoAnn and I flew from Phoenix, AZ. to Des Moines, IA. sardine class.  Came to Iowa to visit with family.  We got this Dodge Journey for a rental.  I liked it other then the Kumbo tires were noisy at 55 plus speeds.  JoAnn liked the heated steering wheel.   
Rented this little house.  Two bedroom two full bathrooms, one being in the basement.  Very quiet neighborhood.  

Back of the house.  Only heard one dog bark for about 20 seconds, one time.  Not like living at our Arizona home.

Went to Sioux City, IA. to meet up with my sisters and brother-in-laws for lunch.  My parents have both passed away.  My Mom in 2003 and my Dad in 2016.  Not a day goes by I think about them and miss them.    

Would have liked to have got a photo of a combine next to a semi truck/trailer.  WAY bigger then a semi truck.

JoAnn had the "Famous Cheeseburger salad."  We get a kick out of places who use famous in the title.  Another one we got a kick out of was the ball park burger.  It was a burger with a hot dog cut in half and put on top.  One of my brother-in-laws got that.

Lots of wind turbine since the last time we were in Iowa.

This is one of the blades of a wind turbine.  You can compare it with the semi truck/trailers.  This is located at a rest area along I-80.

They go for miles.

A little out of focus, but shows a wind turbine being built.  Lots more going up. 

Heading for JoAnn's parent's house.  Traffic in Des Moines on the 235.  Hooked up with most of JoAnn's sisters and brothers one day, the rest of the time spent with her parents, when not at the rental.

Snow in the forecast the night before we were going to leave for Arizona.

The morning leaving.  Nothing bad.  Roads were clear.

Back in Phoenix, AZ.  Flight was long in sardine class.  Was good to be back in our car. 

This driver thought they were "special" driving on the shoulder to get ahead of us and others.  Had several like that.

Of course then you have the ones who wait until the last minute to try to cut in line for an exit.

In the HOV lane.  Heading back to our Arizona home.
