We bailed on Knoxville around 10a, long story, more details and photos tonight. Heading a day early to Little Rock and right in Nashville along I-40 West, the skies got angry. Huge bolts of lightning, then whoosh, rains so heavy the wipers couldn’t catch up. Worse, there was ZERO visibility. And by zero I don’t mean there was a little bit, I mean zero as in zero, none. Zilch. Everyone came to a halt. Flashers on. Trucks kept at a distance.
In all the years I’ve been driving, this the first time I can ever remember being nervous about getting hit.
The peak of the downpour I missed a chance to exit because I was in the middle lane so I had to drive another couple of miles to exit. We’re stopped for lunch now, waiting for the blood return to my knuckles.
The sun is out now but I think we’re driving into more storms.
