Shelter from the Storm
As I drove back to central Illinois from college in northern Indiana, I hit a mild snowstorm that grew heavier every moment.
The visibility was getting worse and I had been low on gas for several miles. I was afraid I would run out and my car be buried in a mountain on snow. Luckily, I located an exit and took it. A lone gas station was nearby.
This gas station was truly in the middle of nowhere. A "last stop" kind of truck stop. Truckers joked with each other and played slot machines as they took a break from the storm. I put gas in my tank and managed to squeeze out a cup of coffee from the near-empty pot.
I had my DSLR camera with me and decided to take a shot before I went back out on the road. I made it, but it was quite a slow drive.
