I’m that person who pisses everyone off in this weather.
I drive like an old lady and brake more than I really should.
I keep an extremely safe distance between me and the peeps in front of me.
I drive at 10 and 2 and my knuckles are white.
I have anxiety the entire time I’m behind the wheel in this weather.
I have a headache by the time I get home from clenching my teeth.
I’m that person that drives everyone nuts. That everyone screams, “Come on! It’s just a little snow! You live in Indiana! You should be able to handle it!”
Truth is….I can’t handle it.
Ever since that car accident back in winter of 2002 I have been unable to cope while driving with confidence in this weather. I’m scared to death that I’m going to spin out of control and wind up head on with a tree again.
So, there you have it. That’s why I’m that person in this weather.
Give me a break!
Now….I do enjoy this weather for a variety of reasons. Sledding, maybe even skiing if we can ever get away, and especially snowmobiling with my sweetie.
We got to cruise around tonight and enjoyed a little ride together. He makes me a nervous wreck usually going too fast and enjoying hearing me squeal and nag him. It’s all part of his plan to get me to squeeze him a little tighter.
Even though I’m “that” person on the road I can enjoy the weather from the safety of the backseat with my man or from the comfort of our home.
Be safe everyone!
