A bit more exiting than what I like!
It feels like autumn has moved in to a new stage, the cold part. We now have -5 C (23 F) at night and just above 8 C (46 F) duri´ng the day even if the sun is shining. Well what else is to expect, winter’s just around the corner but I still hope it’ll turn towards warmer (and perhaps rainier) weather again. I so want a warm winter again like the one we had last time.
It rained all Tuesday and I wrote here that the drive to work would be very exiting. I’ve never been more right in my entire life 🙂 The road in the village was no problem and I test braked a couple of times n the road outside the village, no problems at all. I was really surprised that the road was as good as it was. I did drive a bit slower than normal though and came down to the big highway without any problems. Before I turned left I saw a car that behaved rather strangely, it sort of swerved and suddenly the flashers started to flash that show it would turn to the right, even if it was impossible to turn right for several hundred meters (much the same in yards)
I wondered if it was a drunk driver and decided it was best to pass it as quickly as possible. I came up in speed rather quickly and then I realized that the driver wasn’t drunk at all, most possibly very sober. I realized that when the back wheels of my car tried to pass the front ones 🙂 🙂 🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever been as afraid as I was yesterday morning. It is anything but fun when a car can’t decide if the front or the back should go first in 90 km/t (56 mi/h) Thankfully I was alone on the road by that time, the other car had finally found a parking spot and there were no other cars that I could meet.
There’s nothing much one can do that just sit in the car hoping the front will win when the road is covered with black ice. I was lucky and let the car slow down very much 🙂 But that didn’t help at all, any speed was too fast to be honest so I too found a parking spot by the road and then I phoned my boss. Even though I have speed dial on my mobile phone I shivered so much that I hardly could make the phone make the call 🙂 🙂 🙂 I sat there for a long time and since no other cars were to be seen I slowly, slowly started ti drive to work again. My boss said that the smaller roads to work were just fine and I was rather close to one of them 🙂
There were other people who weren’t as lucky as I was and one died. So I was very, very careful this morning and started very early just so I could drive when nobody else was out on the roads but today was a much better day when it came to roads 🙂 But I still am worried in my stomach after yesterdays exiting drive to work 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’ll turn back home again if I ever find the roads in that condition again! Now it’s time for something to eat and a pot of tea 🙂
Have a great day!
