I try to avoid this now and just keep on rolling much more aware of my surroundings. In Floriduh it's usually clear in a few miles anyway.
Fair point, but again, it's a question of risk: where are you most vulnerable?

Personally, I avoid the overpasses and just get off the highway and find a covered gas station. But if the squall is bad enough, getting off the road is the #1 consideration.
