On the Road Again
You are driving to an interview in another state. The route the company gave you takes you through unfamiliar territory, and an electrical storm seems to be following your every move. Looking for cover, or at least relief, you are growing increasingly nervous about the unbelievable bolts of lightning, cracks of thunder, and a downpour so thick you can barely see in front of you. This road seems to be surrounded by nothing but rural farmland. If you take an exit, you’re not sure you’ll just head directly into the center of the storm rather than away from it. Which way do you turn?
