And to everyone around you!
I am sitting quietly, and quite happily, in the passenger seat of our new minivan with Sophie as my mascot. The evening is beautiful, not a cloud in the sky. Ah, peaceful.
What a difference an hour can make. I was driving then. Out of nowhere we hit a whiteout. I mean, from no snow, on the ground or in the air, to no longer being able to see the road (not which lane I was in, but actually if I was even on the road or not).
My husband of course, from his corner in the passenger seat, could see everything. As I tried to slow down and hang on to my nerves for the next mile until I reached the rest stop it got worse and worse. Uh oh, just missed the exit. Not my fault. Couldn’t remember if I was to drive on the right or left of the exit sign to stay on the ramp. Okay, only one more mile till the next exit.
As I started to slide in the deep snow I inched this battleship of a vehicle down the road. 3/4 of a mile, 1/2 a mile, 1/4 mile. “you’re a danger to yourself and everyone else on the road”. Did I hear something? Nope! And so, having safely made it off the ramp, firmly planted my butt in the passenger seat, and relinquished the driving responsibilities, we serenely continue down the road, now without a speck of snow.
