My heart is racing!

We are driving to the Florida Keys right now (hubby's driving, I'm on here). We were just driving through Fort Lauderdale and these freak storm hit. It was raining so hard that you couldn't see anything and traffic on I-95 was crawling. We were in the far right lane and I happened to look up and over towards the far left lane (there's 4 or 5 lanes) just in time to see a motorcyclist getting ready to run into a stopped Tahoe. I can see he's going too fast and he lays his bike down. I'm yelling the whole time. His head slams into the Tahoe.

Thank God he was wearing a helmet (there are no helmet laws in FL). Double thank God there was a police officer right behind him that immediately flipped on his lights.

I'm yelling "No, no, watch out!" My husband has no idea what I'm yelling about and didn't see a thing. Thankfully he was concentrating in the road ahead of us because I'm pretty certain I've never been in the road in a storm as bad as that.

The motorcycle incident just happened to have occurred under an overpass so I could clearly see what was happening.

I really hope he is ok. Thankfully we have driven out of the storm now, it was awful.
