These things happen in Iowa

I almost hit a deer last night.  I was driving from Chicago to Des Moines on I-80 and it was pretty late, after 10 o'clock.  I was in the left lane and it crossed ahead of me to the right lane where it hit the left headlight of a car and was flung back toward my car.  It rolled (slumped?) onto the shoulder seconds before I passed.  There wasn't a car in the right lane next to me, so I was prepared to swerve, but I didn't have to.  The whole thing was terrifying, but I was listening to the Jake, Jim, Becca, Chuck cover of "My Sacrifice," so it was equally surreal.
