Waukegan to Gainesville


chicagoMichiganAvenueDriving the Ryder truck toward Gainesville early in the afternoon with the wind in my back. Dark clouds ahead. The highway is still partially wet from the rain which poured down earlier. While looking in the left outside mirror I notice wisps of white smoke clouds swirling from the rear tire. The first thought I have is that the tires are on fire. After watching the game of clouds for endless minutes I reassure myself that the ‘smoke’ is just clouds of water droplets.
