What's The Wildest Weather You've Driven Through?

In the last few days I've started the move from Chicago to Houston. Last night an unusually strong storm blew through Northern Illinois and Chicago with hurricane-force winds (shutting down a Cubs-Astros game). Good thing I removed myself to Houston, where a French-named strong tropical storm is now bearing down on me. Understandably, I'm not driving right now. But anyone in the Houston area watching the news is getting minute-by-minute updates on people spinning out and wrecking their rides. And this is a weak storm.

We've driven through worse and we're sure you've driven through worse. Driving through a hurricane is no fun as you can feel your car getting pushed off the road (just stay home). Driving through a snow storm is even scarier as you can't see what's going and the white stuff overwhelms your vision (just stay home). A serious flood is perhaps the most frightening of all, as you watch the water rapidly rise (stay on high ground). So what's the worst weather you've driven through? [Photo: Getty Images]
