Sioux City, IA

Tonight we are in a Rodeway Inn in Sioux City. It's in sort of an industrial neighborhood but the room is fine, tho it took some doing to figure out the TV. Ellen is watching America's test kitchen, on the "Create channel" but I think she's already asleep.

We left Bartlett at about 9:30 this a.m. and went directly to Anamosa, IA where we stopped to visit Betty Remley. Betty had fallen about when I did, so we commiserated. In her case she hit her head and had a big hematoma which left her face discolored, so I didn't take any photos. But she is still sharp as a tack. E.g., she is currently reading a novel by Isabel Allende. She is 99! 

From there we took US 30 to Ames, had supper at a Culver's, went up to US 20 and west to Sioux City. No snow all the way. I read Virginia Woolf aloud, we listened to NPR and the lectures on "Dialects." The US is a dialect-rich country! 

Tomorrow it will be Nebraska most of the day and into southern Wyoming. Alpine by Thursday.
