Ruthie On The Road, Update

I walked down the ramp outside of Dillon, Montana and walked up a hill on the interstate. Suddenly, the sky opened up and dropped a freezing cold shower on me. Then the wind began to blow and chilled me to my bones.

In a twist of natural irony, the sun suddenly broke through the storm and painted two enormous, vivid rainbows behind me.

"Are you lucky?!" I shouted at them, through chattering teeth.

With movie-like timing, a flatbed semi rolled past me and skidded to a stop.

The driver pulled me into the cab, covered me with a blanket, handed me a towel and turned up the heat full-blast.

He was great company and he drove me all the way to Nebraska.
