It took me 19 hours to drive back from Winnipeg to Calgary yesterday. Normally its supposed to take between 11-13 hours. It was -32 degrees Celsius in Manitoba and then in Saskatchewan it dropped to -39 with the wind chill. The gusts of wind were blowing the cargo van all over the roads. But when I got Alberta, the there was a blizzard. The blowing snow made the visibility so poor and the roads were very icy. I'm 100 km from home and these 2 full grown white tail deer pop out of the blowing snow and are now running across my path. I can't slam the breaks as I would lose control of the van on the ice. There is a 53 foot transporter truck behind me. I'm trapped and it looks like I'm going to crash into the deer.
I got the horn and managed to turn one of the deer away from running into me. The other jumped passed the van and made it to the other side. The other deer was running parallel to me for a moment and I thought I've avoided a crash but then the deer steered his head and turned to the van and he put his head and leg through the bumper. His front leg snapped off and his head got crushed by the front wheel. The deer went under the wheel, my van os partially airborne and then I see this huge deer flying by my window flipping in the air. Clearly it was destroyed.
I'm focused on keeping the van straight so not to lose control. The transporter decided to pass me a split second after I hit the deer.
Now the transporter is blowing up all the snow and it's a complete white out. I can't see A thing. And because my light was destroyed, I suspect the truck driver could no longer see me.
He began to veer into me as he must have thought he passed me in order to do a lane change.
I manage to slow the vehicle down just enough to miss the backend of his trailer from touching my destroyed front bumper.
I'm very lucky to be alive. #insect#butterfly🦋 #butterflies#beetle#lepidoptera#goth#arthropods#coleoptera#moth 💀 #entomologyart#almostdied#signatures#caraccident#unique#witchcraft#canadianmade#occultart#neardeathexperience#insect#macabreart#horrorart#gothic#creepyshit#nearmiss#macabre#artist#horror#signatures.ca #macabreart#luckytobealive
