Hello everyone, Direct quote from Sins and Needles by Karina Halle: "He took the next exit, and I couldn’t help but scream again as we headed the wrong way down an on-ramp. Soon we were flying across the meridian, and with a deft twist, he got the car on the right side of the road. We sped off down the street until the house and buildings emptied into undeveloped desert. We were safe, for now." What does "Soon we were flying across the meridian" mean? Across the meridian? The rest is for context. Honestly, I haven't got the faintest idea.
