wall of white.

It may be a bit hard to describe you you in writing but the voyage back home tonight was somewhat of journey through a white hell.

I had just dropped my buddy off at his house when i began to cruise down his street and in front of me i see a wall of white..
and I think it's just a minor gust do I go through it and all of a sudden I found myself in a white limbo not even being able to see the ground out my driver's window..

I've drove through many rough winter conditions including back from Montreal in a compact rental during that storm where Mel called in the troops. Or careening down that farm valley section on the 400 towards Barrie and a whiteout wind gust pushed the front end making my car travel sideways at 120km/h with traffic all around.

But nothing was as fucked up as this.. the winds kept elevating in strength almost incrimentally as i kept picturing a pole, car, tire, slamming across the road.. picking up my car along with it.

then all of a sudden poof! A clear sky, minor gusts, and a big white void behind me uncovering more ground as I drove further. Driving past gas stations tunred into makeshift car piles for the tow trucks.

as i got to my destination I was about 15 km from the exodus of this thing, and i looked back to see almost exactly where it divided ground.

Strange shit goes down at 5 am sometimes.

I was going to go somewhere after work, but figured it was too bad oot.

Our backyard fence blew over today.

I thought there was a tornado or something, never seen wind gust so high, at least not in recent memory.

And OTIS stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

And the LORD said unto OTIS, Yo man, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon Preroller, upon his chariot, and upon his horse.

And OTIS stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and Preroller fled against it; and the LORD overthrew Preroller in the midst of the sea.

And the LORD said unto OTIS big up thine chest bro yo you kno' what i'm sayin' yo?

the weather is supposed to get like this just before the huge asteroid strikes earth....

the big maple tree in my backyard is swaying back and forth and touching the hydro, telephone, and rogers lines every so often. I hope it doesn't break 'em.

Last night I was driving home at around 2am and the streets were covered in ice.
I'm stopped at an intersection and the light turns green for me to go, but I see a van coming a my left, about to brake for his red light.
Something tells me not to go yet, so I wait for the van to stop. About 1 second later, that van slides right through the intersection. The guy would t-boned my car and I would have been smoked being on the driver's side. Good thing for instincts.
