In a previous life I rode MC everywhere. That included being caught in the open on interstate with NO where to pull of East of Mobile, BAMA. Hailed on, serious wind...
Finally exited and pulled into gas station which had lost all its glass. As I stepped into the store the employee and patrons came out of the fridge areA, totally shaken.... Saying "how did you he here?!!" I said "just rode in from Mobile..""why""?" Attendant said..." Mr. We just had a tornado come through. How did you survive?"
He was really freaking out, As well as several patrons. I assured them I had just ridden my motorcycle in. About this time we noticed the patrons cars were missing and a lot of the roof and all glass as well as most of the merchandise. This furthered the awe of my supposed riding skills.
About that time my riding buddy walked up. Said, "man I saw you disappear in the rain cloud and took first exit. Glad I found you ok!"
Next, a local police and a State patrol units pulled up with similar bewilderment that we had just ridden through the storm. They questioned us for a bit and were not really biting on the facts.
We then Began to realize how BLESSED we were.... In reached over to the Rosary I kept on my handlebars and said a quick prayer ending with "thanks Mom!"
I later found white feathers embedded in my patch colors vest and other places on the MC. I realized those are Guardian Angel feathers which I have found after some of my "close calls". Hopefully I am done "collecting" those.
Bottom line, exercise caution where you should and have your house in order because when your "number" comes up, you may as well enjoy the ride.
Peace and Blessings..
