That sums up the past few days.
Driving home yesterday we got caught in a horrible storm just as we were crossing the Delaware Bridge. Golf ball size hail for almost an hour. It was delightful. But I will say, Saturn, that whole plastic car idea. Fantastic! Not a ding in sight.
Both flyboy and I aren't huge fans of driving in weather like that, he kept mentioning several times that he would rather be flying around the sandbox then driving in that. (Of course come to think of it he said that while we were visiting my extended family too.....)
We pulled over at one of the rest stops to try to figure out what the weather was doing and wait out the worst of it. Another shout out, Verizon, Internet anywhere, Brilliant! No more will I mumble when I pay the bill every month, well I'll grumble less.
For those of you not familiar with the Jersey Turnpike its three lanes both directions, pretty typical major road. Well cars were stopping IN THE ROAD under the over passes to avoid the rain. Again, I don't enjoy driving in that kinda weather but isn't just randomly stopping in the middle of a major road kinda dangerous? Just a bit?
And let me tell you there were some pissed off people who were laying on their horns (my husband included) one guy even stuck his head out the window to yell, all while being pelted by hail. It was actually kinda amusing. Note to self, do not slow down New Jersians on the roadway. But seriously in the name of safety, pull over on the shoulder, not every other over pass between there and Exit 3.
Other then a lot of extra time spent in the car it was a nice weekend. It was nice to see everyone and the boys got to see a lot of extended for the first time and after all that driving, what will probably be the last time for a while! At least if flyboy has a vote....
