Today the reporter becomes the reportee.
I’m driving to Toronto for a couple of TV shoots. Season three of Whatever Happened To is wrapping up with one more instalment and I’m shooting segments for a show being produced for Star TV. It’s raining. I now live in London. Toronto is a 2 hour drive on the best of days. So I’m allowing 3 hours.
I’ve always known the importance of traffic and weather together on the 1’s and I recall that on wet days, drivers lose their minds and move like hypoglycemic snails on the highways. But today I will experience the frustrations and palpitations first hand, as I haven’t really done in more than a decade. (Leaving for work at 3:20 am has its perks!)
So wish me luck. Wish me safety. And for goodness sake, stay outta my way!
