The California roads aren't equipped for rain. I learned this tonight, on the ramp merging to get on the 15 going about 50 and all of a sudden hit a patch of water and my car started spinning. There was no feeling of 'hydroplaning', i went from going straight to all of a sudden "holy shit im spinning". In a split second I somehow turned the wheel in time to prevent from smashing into the guard rail ending up in a 180 parallel to it and facing the opposite direction of traffic. I was panicking and praying i wouldnt see head lights on the on rap i was on that had a curve... Cause no one would have seen me until it was too late. Thank God no one was behind me or I would have been hit head on. My fortune cookie last week said "soon you will witness a miracle." I just did and I'm so thankful. There were other accidents today near me in San Diego and people died. I got lucky.
Everyone, please drive careful in these conditions.
I'm pretty shaken up, but thanking God and my guardian angels that I somehow reacted the right way and no one was behind me. Feeling lucky and blessed.
The ironic thing is that I had a similar dream a 2 days ago... Except my mom was the one driving on the freeway and i was next to her and all of a sudden out of nowhere there was a tornado and the gust of wind spun the car in a circle but as it happened I remember saying "you got this mom, we can get out of this" and she got the car straightened out and we escaped the tornado and flying debris.
Holy shitballs. And this is also my 200th post.
Please drive careful guys. Especially in the rain and especially I'd you live in California where the roads suck.
