We got off at the wrong exit (business 3 instead of real 3), and as we went back onto the highway the right wheel hooked off the road onto a lower shoulder (couldn't see the edge of the road). I turned the wheel to get back on the road, and next thing I knew we were spun around facing the wrong direction. And still moving. Backwards. I turned back into the spin, and the Fiesta recovered as if there hadn't been any problem at all. Say what you will against the Fiesta, it was front-wheel drive.True Confessions - I went to WO one year with JR, in his "Unsafe At Any Speed" Ford Fiesta, a car so bad that Ralph Nader strongly recommended driving a tiny Shriner's car instead, as it was more dependable and stood up to an impact better. It snowed the whole way there, and I remember going into a slide on an entrance ramp. JR seemed unconcerned, though possibly it was because he was a Dare-Death Driver. (see G18.63) It took years of therapy for me to get over the experience, and even now, I still occasionally wake up screaming in the middle of the night.
It seems MMP did not yield to JR's demands (limo service from BWI, Executive suite, a complimentary copy of Red Factories and Amerikanskaya Suka for the evening round)You run a quite high risk of bad weather at WO, and while snow storms are interesting, freezing rain is much worse and is very scary.
It would take me longer to drive to the airport, go through security, fly down (most the time spent loading) and find the limo than just to drive down. And if it's snowing/icing, I would be waiting in the airport.It seems MMP did not yield to JR's demands (limo service from BWI, Executive suite, a complimentary copy of Red Factories and Amerikanskaya Suka for the evening round)
Thanks for the local sit-rep. Update if needed.I live about 30 miles south of Bowie. The forecast for Saturday is for rain, continuing into Sunday. Saturday is supposed to remain above freezing, but as the rain moves out on Sunday afternoon, a cold front will move in, producing a wintry mix. The high on Sunday is supposed to her 46F, but the low will be 11F.
