Funnel Cloud in Montana

via Daily Prompt: Funnel

Years ago, my boyfriend and I travelled across the country in my new sports car.  I am not normally a traveller, especially by airplane so driving in my new car made it much more pleasurable.

We started in Ontario and drove to Nashville, Tennessee.  This is a place I had always wanted to check out.  We took in the Grand Ole Opry and a few landmarks.  Of course we went shopping and dancing.  Back in the day we did love to go out two-stepping.

On our route back we continued to drive through the States.  When we got to Montana the weather channel was calling for a possible tornado so that freaked me out.  Sure enough as we were driving, my boyfriend noticed a funnel cloud off in the distance.

I thought sure it was my destiny to die now on this road trip.  Those thoughts were part of my life long anxiety issues.  I was always so afraid of dying.  I asked him to pull over and stop driving.  I didn’t want to be driving when the funnel cloud came at us.  He laughed and said it was quite a distance away from us.   He said we had time to find somewhere to stay for the night.

Finally, we came to a motel that had vacancies and we hunkered down for the night.  The next day the funnel cloud was gone, the storm was no longer a threat and we carried on through the rest of the States and back in to Canada.

I don’t know why I have always been so afraid of travelling.  I use to have to travel every year to my parents home province as a kid, until I was 13.  We always drove by car.  It was a long drive, only stopping for the occasional bathroom break and maybe some french fries instead of dried out sandwiches.  We never had any  major incidents so I should have been comfortable driving in a car as an adult.

To this day I avoid travelling as much as I can, whether it is by plane or by car and certainly not by train.  If you are getting ready to travel, I hope your journey is pleasurable and safe.  Have a great day!

I’m Frazzled Again.
