Trust me, this is not just another post. Unlike my last experience, it was not midnight, it was not even the interstate highway but a state route. Its called the Higgins Road which contributes the most of my drive to and from my sears office. I started from my desk at 7 PM today. when i came out i already started worrying looking at the raining snow.
and it was scary when i came out of the parking lot and the real thrill started when i took the Right on the Higgins. Wheels were on war with my steering for a few seconds. I was scared to death. I was 200% sure that i will not reach home. it was about 6 miles for me to reach home. i was driving less than 30 when the limit said 55 mph. some how got the wheels to an acceptable control and got back on the road but no way i was aware of the lane (if at all) i was driving. Though most cars were driving slow, some of them still were driving great speed (might be 40).
Every signal added fear for i wasnt sure if the wheels would listen to my brakes. Never was in complete control even for a fraction of a second.
was as usual trying to follow the previous car tracks, but the still falling heavy snow wasnt helpful.
Though my hope was rising every min as i was getting closer home, the worst nightmare was my last left signal on Barrington Road. This is one signal which you have to be careful even on a sunny day. A real big curve it is.
I transformed my Nissan to a snail just like the one heading before me on the turn and kept creeping behind.
yes i did make it finally. From there it is less than a mile. i continued creeping until i reached my apartment parking lot. I was jumping in joy inside when i shifted the gear to parking!
This was the Best Worst Drive of my 1 year Four Wheel Driving Life!
