What's The Worst Weather You've Ever Driven Through?

So yeah, there's a hurricane coming. No biggie. The windows are almost all boarded up, we've got beer, we've got food, we've got scrabble and, more importantly, we've got the cars in the garage. If we had a press vehicle, we'd maybe consider taking a leisurely trip out into the storm, but driving in a non-press vehicle over a power line is a fate worse than death — though death is certainly involved. Even if we went out into the hurricane, it might not be the worst weather we've driven through. There have been earthquakes and mudslides, blizzards and floods. Oh, and don't forget the tornadoes. What's the worst weather you've driven in? At least in a hurricane the road stays still while everything else moves. An ice storm in Chicago, with insane winds blowing around a dinky honda civic is about as unnerving an experience as you can imagine. Steering wheels and brakes become options. It's no fun. But what's worse?
