I noticed how drastic the temperature changes were
The people I was with and I recently had one of the worst Wintertide storms the people I was with and I have ever experienced in our area. I have to admit that, at times, I can be a entirely stubborn person, and after visiting a acquaintance the day before the storm was to roll into town, I insisted that it was perfectly fine for myself and others to try and head home. My acquaintance was entirely upset for myself and others and insisted that I would not be imposing if I stayed for an extra couple of days to wait for the storm to blow over. I told him everything was going to be fine and that I was an expert in driving in the snow. The concern was the trip was over 60 miles and the snow was already falling in earnest by the time I got into our car and cranked the engine up. The other concern was that our acquaintance lived in the country and most of that trip was going to be in the wilderness where help was a considerable distance away. I believe you believe where this is going. The roads became unacceptable a mere twenty miles from home and it was up to our heating system to keep myself and others alive until help could arrive. Thankfully, I had made sure to fill up our tank before I left and I was able to keep our car on and running with the heat blasting. Nevertheless, it was severely cold, colder than any frigid I previously experienced, and I was absolutely frightened. Though I was able to eventually get off the road and into the safety of our own home, I cursed myself for not staying with our acquaintance a little longer and enjoying his good heating system while the snow storm raged outside instead of being stuck in the middle of it and being forced to use our car heating system for survival!
