On my way to Des Moines this weekend there was an accident on I-35 with an ammonia spill that shut down the interstate, and caused them to evacuate the area 1/2-mile around the spill. I had heard of the spill on the radio while driving into Kansas City, so I had to find a route around the spill area.

What I found on my detour, though, was really beautiful country. It made the detour well worth it.

Anyone else remember Pamida?
