Setting the scene…we all know how crazy the weather in the Midwest was yesterday. Well that carried into Cleveland mainly in the form of very strong winds and heavy rain. As I am leaving work around 11pm heading home on I-71 south, the front is just approaching, so it has only begun to drizzle but is very windy. Speed limit is 60mph. I am cruising in the fast lane (4 lane highway each direction) at about 65-68. I get up on a little Honda Accord (‘94-’96) and patiently wait for them to move over and allow me by, as by this time we are only doing 60 in the passing lane. I wait about a quarter mile then decided to get behind a vehicle in the adjacent lane to the right of me to move over a second lane to get back over to the far left lane. As I creep behind the car in the next lane and so on to the next, this little Accord decided to speed up. By the time I get back around the guy I just passed we are now both doing 75, as I want to get in front of this Accord. He then comes up on slower traffic and has to move over two lanes as I move over one to pass by. He slithers back in front in the fast lane after pretty much cutting off a few people as I once again come from two lanes over, now we are up to 85 approaching 90. I cut in front of what turns out to be a her in the fast lane and then decide to irritate her as we approach some traffic, so, being in no hurry now, I slow back to my 65-70 speed until we get by traffic and she once again, gets on the inside of me and tries to blow by. I will have none of this seeing as how all I wanted to begin with was the courtesy to be let by. So, as soon as she gets next to me I hit it, not to the floor, but just down a gear, as her ride is no competition for my ‘treps full throttle. We race up until I hit 95mph having her beat by at least 500 feet. I slow down to claim victory, as she then quickly buzzes off at the next exit. I admit it felt good, but the wind really added a challenge blowing in 55+mph gusts. I would have liked to played some more but I too, would soon need to exit, as I was below an eighth tank of gas and would not make it home. That was about the extent of it, nothing compared to actually driving through the storm when it hit, talk about rain and wind and having no streetlights to see any pavement. You know the kind, blacktop that pretty much disappears in the rain and reflects like a pane of glass. I’m just thankful it wasn’t cold enough to do here what it did in the North Dakota and Wisconsin. We will be seeing that soon enough!
