Day 9 – Alaska to New Jersey

The ninth day of our move was May 17, 2017 and we spent the day driving through Minnesota, Iowa and into Illinois.

This was the first day we really had to deal with any bad weather.  Many years ago we had lived a short time in Iowa so we were familiar with the risk of tornadoes, especially during late spring / early summer.  The clouds were ominous and there had indeed been tornadoes in different areas of the country associated with this storm, but we were fortunate and saw no real signs of the weather turning quite that bad for us.  We managed to outrun the worst of it.

This is how I remember Iowa from when I lived here years ago – threatening storms & farmland. Driving through Iowa on our way from Alaska to New Jersey.

The stormy skies made for some interesting photos though – I always love a sky with some interest in it and storm clouds definitely add that.
