Happy new week friends!
Last weekend was mixed with sheer excitement and later on masked with a huge scare. On my way to Billings, MT, I decided to break the 6.5 hours drive by stopping in Sheridan, WY. The park was nothing short of beautiful so I opted to catch this scenic environment through the lens of my camera. I paired my patchwork denim skirt with nude shoes and belt, and gunmetal accessories. This beautiful motorcycle watch was gifted to me by BornPretty store. Though shipping took a while (because of the Chinese New Year), it was worth the wait. It has three adjustable closures, the smallest was too snug for me so I used the next level. I have a small wrist and I believe this will be suitable for those with very small to medium sized wrists. Use code LOMC10 to get 10% off your order.
I got to Billings hassle-free. The night before my appointment, the heavens opened and 7 inches of snow rested like a huge cloud over everything. “No big deal, I’m from Wyoming and we get this kind of snow” I muttered. Done with my appointment, I was caught in the middle contemplating the 2-hour drive back to Sheridan or staying in Billings for the weekend, I opted to leave as another 7-10 inches of snow was looming in the horizon. Driving 35 mph in a 65 mph zone was the fastest I could go without feeling my new tires literally ‘skating’ on the sheets of sleet and snow. To my left, every few miles were cars, 2 wheelers and 4-wheelers alike, that had driven off the highway and gotten stuck in ditches packed with no less than 10 inches of snow. I prayed quietly under my breathe with both hands clutched to the steering wheels like an 80-year old woman. <= This was the better portion of the journey.
Long story short, there were periods I almost went off the highway because huge semis thought it was cool to drive on the unploughed section of the road, instantaneously aerosolizing bucketfuls of snow and within seconds changing a 70% visibility to 0. As they approached, I turned on my hazard light and came to a grinding halt if there were no cars behind me. Typically on a long drive, I tend to feel sleepy and make frequent stops. This drive was different: my eyes were (shining koro-koro) as wide as those of an owl, it was too risky not be alert. By the time I made it back to town, my feet were numb, my eyes were aching from exhaustion, and my stomach growling from hunger. I ate quickly like a child eating the forbidden candy (or Peak milk) and within minutes was married to my bed. This was by far the most harrowing driving experience I’ve had. I’d like to hear your story, leave a comment below. As always, thank you so much for stopping by and I’ll be in touch with you soon.
