It was the mid 1980s. I was a young driver without a lot of bad weather driving experience. My BFF, Paulette, and I were having a girls weekend in Cloudland Canyon, one of the Georgia State Parks in the rugged mountains region in the northwest corner of the state. The roads are narrow, the turns are curvy and at points the elevations reach 1800 feet.
On one occasion we were driving on a lonely road and a thunderstorm hit suddenly (think pre-Weather Channel). The downpour was so fierce that there was zero visibility. The windshield wipers became insignificant and we prayed our way down the mountain.
While many other weather events have occurred since then while travelling, I always point back to that precise moment. I know God helped me drive and I know God kept us safe. That is a travel blessing for which I am eternally grateful. No matter how bad the storm, I know it can never be worse than the Cloudland Canyon event.
Now it is your chance to tell your story. What travel blessing occurred when you were on your journey? Were you protected from horrible weather conditions? Were you spared in a train, plane, auto or watercraft? Post & comment as noted below.
