If you live in the UK, you’ll know about the vicious weather we’ve had in the last few days. To put it simply; it’s been vile. Yesterday, however, was something special. Rain, as it does, appeared out of nowhere and before anyone had chance to think, everywhere was pretty much flooded. Luckily, Sam and I missed the flooding as we were driving from Castleford to York but we didn’t miss out in being in the middle of torrential weather.
Coming onto the A64 dual carriageway, we experienced something that I never knew could happen to a car (and we’re still not 100% sure on what actually happened). It felt like a huge gust of wind started pushing the car from right to left, completely turning the tires and affecting Sam’s steering. The car, trying to get itself to lose control locked the wheels into the left position and Sam had to force it back over to the right. Because of this, the car flew from one side of the road to the other many times and, honestly, I thought that was it. I thought we were done for. Luckily, it was over pretty much as soon as it began and Sam got the car under control again. It’s just a good job that it was late Saturday evening and there were barely any other cars on the road. Had it been a different time of day, the story might have ended a lot differently.
When we got home, I told Sam that I loved him because even though nothing happened it was still bloody terrifying! All is well, however, and everyone is ay-okay!
