I drove home through what had to be the worst storm I’ve ever driven in for almost two hours last night ! The rain was falling in sheets, it was pitch black, I couldn’t even see the reflectors in the road (much less the white lines). The best I could do was line up my car with the brake lights in front of me. At one point I (and pretty much everyone around me) was driving 25 m.p.h. on I-40.
I really wasn’t sure whether I could keep my car on the road or not. For 95 minutes with only maybe 5 minutes of slacking in the rain I sat tensely hunched over the steering wheel praying without ceasing and squinting as hard as I could to try and make out the white lines in the road.
By the way, have I ever told you the two things I hate most in this world? First, driving in the rain. Second, driving at night. To have the two combined was a real treat.
Thank God I made it home in one piece!
