For the first time we are actually in winter driving weather and after stopping in a town to get a sense of what was ahead of us, we decided to give up.
So we are staying at a Marriott near the Kansas City Airport. Yes. We are spending a third night in Missouri. We were supposed to be continuing up I-29 towards South Dakota and probably if we could have got to South Dakota we would have been home free. We have lots of company right now. Between conferences and stuck people all the hotels seem pretty full.
I don't know much about the people of Missouri or what normal winter is for them but either they don't have much snow driving conditions or they have a ton. Everyone just automatically slowed down and spaced out. I did find it interesting that an inch of rain was newsworthy though.
