Yesterday I posted a photo of the mountain pass on the drive from Mexico City to Puebla last Friday. The return trip later the same day wasn’t quite so picturesque. While passing over the same stretch of highway, we encountered a light hail storm and a lot of rain. As was the case earlier in the day, I was seated in the front row, passenger side. This time, I decided to capture a bit of video.
The amazing thing to hear in this video is not so much the sound of the hail on the windshield, but the deafening silence of the other fourteen people in the van. I like to think a number of Hail Marys were being quietly recited.
