Driving back from Chicago today, the first three hours were beautiful. It was sunny, the roads were dry, and few cars were out. It was a very pleasant drive.
Then about 40 miles from home, we started driving into more and more snow. Eventually, we were driving 30 mph in a 70 zone. It wasn’t a whiteout or anything – it was safe driving 30, but it wouldn’t have been safe to go faster. So the last 30 miles of highway driving took about an hour (catch that fancy math?), and I was exhausted when we got home.
It’s funny how circumstances beyond your control can change something quite pleasant to something quite stressful.
