On the road again

Over Christmas break last year, I decided to visit a friend at his college since my college break started a few weeks earlier than his. My mom wanted to visit one of her friends in the same area as well, so we drove down together, and I dropped her off, proceeding about an hour further to reach my friend. We had a great time catching up and stayed up late hanging out with friends. Then the next afternoon, I drove back to pick up my mom and head for home.

On the drive home, we hit some pretty heavy traffic due to thick fog. I hated driving in fog, and my mood was made worse by the fact that I had been up late the night before. I couldn’t wait to just get off the freeway.

About five minutes from my exit, the traffic started to let up and I began to relax. Then, all of a sudden, I was in an accident involving two other cars. Because of the fog, we ended up in a small pileup. Nobody was injured, but the cars had to be towed, and I was quite shaken.
