Made it half way to Big Bend

Well despite the weather I made good time to our overnight halt in San Angelo, Texas. The rain and wind were TERRIFYING. I’ve been driving for many, many years and I’ve never had wind almost push me off the road. I also passed at least four vehicles that had wiped out due to rain, two of which were heavily damaged and blocking at least one lane. All pickup trucks. Bad news regardless.

Also this. Looks not bad but I was fighting to keep control of the car. Passing at 70 mph.  Saw the puddle, hence the slowdown, but too late into the pass to ditch to the other lane. Poo came out.
