When I saw this picture, I immediately thought of the road to the airport in the Russian town I lived in.
Now imagine it completely whited out – sky, horizon, road, soft edges, no markings.
Now imagine you’re trying to work out where the centre of the road is and there is no traffic to help.
Of course you veer off two feet or so and in you go through snow into mud.
Now imagine you get out to look and the car’s new-fangled electronic locking system, in minus 25, decides to lock the car anyway. You have a light jacket on because you would have gone from carpark to warm building, had you made it to the airport.
Now imagine a truck with workers pulls up half a kilometre away.
And imagine the worst part of all – you were actually on your way to pick up the gf at the airport and she has no idea what’s happened [before mobile phones there].
