Report Card for Day Three of Travel

Today we left Iowa, traveled through some of Minnesota and across most of South Dakota.
The grades for today are as follows:
Children--A
Stopping early yesterday seemed to do the trick. We all had a break from traveling and were much better today.
Animals--A
The animals are catching on. They were so good today. I think it might have taken them 10 minutes to calm down.
Vehicles--A
Another day of no breakdowns or accidents!! A slight issue with the windshield washer fluid freezing, but all in all not a bad day at all.
Traffic--A+
Traffic? What's that? We were lucky if we were not the only vehicles on the road, coming or going.
Weather--B
Lot's of snow on the ground. Some on the road in spots. Cold, cold, cold.
Motel--B+
This one is definitely closer in grade to the one last night. Just not quite as nice.
I think today was actually a better travel day than yesterday. Tomorrow we will reach our destination. Get settled into our temporary home and as soon as it warms up a few degrees (it is 6 degrees outside right now) we will be exploring.

6 degrees! That is down right frigid! Glad that, although it is a long trip, the trip is going well. Hope the last leg of the journey goes as well. Be safe!
