I keep finding things to post about, but I rarely have time to post them.
For example, before Thankgiving I had a close brush with death. It was about 4am and I was headed north to work. There is a portion of the highway that raises into a curving bridge. It curves right, then left. Yes, there are a large number of accidents on this bridge when the weather is bad.
So, tooling to work, not many vehicles out that early in the morning. I saw some headlights and in my sleep addled mind they were in the other lane, separted by a jersey wall. But I thought "man, those lights are bright." Normally, they lights get blocked by the jersey wall as they get closer... But not this time. I was in the far right lane, the oncoming driver was in the far left lane. I only had a moment of realization before they passed me. Heart was beating a million miles an hour, and the only thought I could get out was "Oh S***!"
I was a little rattled and there is no place to pull off for a few miles. I did not have my bluetooth in. (I rarely have it in that early in the morning.) I pulled my cell phone, but I was shaking and dropped it under the seat. (I didn't find it until I was on lunch break.) It was 25 minutes before I got to work, so when I called the State Police they thanked me for my input but advised me that there was little they could do. I knew as much. Obviously, no accidents reported.
