One of the worst snow storms I have ever been in was during a road trip a few years back. Out in the middle of the desert, the snow started to fall and quickly became a blizzard.
We were lucky, though. In front of us was a large semi truck to lead the way. Because seriously, we could barely see out the side windows, let alone the front.
Then, quite a while into this snow storm, we decided to go around the truck. I don't remember why we decided to go around it, but we slowly edged into the next lane and pushed ahead through the snow.
As soon as we pulled ahead of the truck, we wanted to die.
IT WAS BARELY SNOWING!!!!!!!!
We weren't in the middle of a snow storm! We had just been stuck behind a truck with so much snow on the top of it that it was blowing off behind it as it drove!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!!!!
At the time, it felt like one of the worst snow storms I had ever been in. In hind sight, it was the most pathetic snow storms I had ever been in.
But at the time we were just praying to get safely through the storm!
That's ok, whatever storm you are in needs its due diligence!
