Nothing has a pucker factor like speeding through houston intersections in a thick fog, on slick wet streets.

I drove through that in the truck and it sucked but what was worse was the 300 miles of Ice storm I drove in before I got to the blizzard.

Heavy snow, or freezing rain are the absolute worst. Those and lots of lightning are the only things that ever kept me off the roads

The combinations are really the worst. Cold and raining, fog and cold, etc. Hail sucks too, especially when there's not an overpass near to hide under.

I then exited, deciding to now go home, but was still battling constant wind being pushed all around. My buddy I was with got pushed into oncoming traffic several times.

You cant visually see wind except by looking at the trees, but even then you can be fooled.
Check out this article, it will help you and your buddy out alot.
