Split Second Decisions

A literal last second decision to veer off to the northeast instead of the northwest brought that obligatory 'I hope this is the right decision' sinking feeling to my stomach earlier tonight. 

As it turns out, after a half hour of uncertainty, it was. ...Without, of course, knowing exactly how the west would have turned out. But a complete clearing of some scattered cloud just as lady aurora danced over our heads left little doubt and only a feeling of being very lucky.
