Driving to my brother's house today, going up Freya, I saw a HUGE tumbleweed in the other lane. It was practically blocking traffic, it was so big.
And because I was looking at it, I failed to notice that a car in my lane was turning left, and so, had stopped in the road.
I managed to not hit anyone, and also I learned how well my brakes work (VERY), but it was a bit of excitement (and embarrassment).
Today I almost died because of a tumbleweed.
