Earlier today, in between showers, I headed over to the Post Office, bank and grocery store. I left home during a lovely sun break. Of course when I came out of the store with a gallon of milk, my purse and several bags of stuff ...... it was during a rain break. That's always the way it happens.
And as usual when it's raining I turn on my headlights. I was taught that in Drivers Training back in 1958. The rule was if your windshield wipers are on then you turn your head lights on too.
As I pulled out of the grocery store parking lot, the rain was coming down so hard I had to turn the wipers on almost as fast as they would go. This kid came past me on the main drag, going so fast, faster than the speed limit I'm sure & it was pouring! A car pulled out in front of him and when he finally braked he skidded all over the road. He's darn lucky he didn't hit anyone.
Then I heard on the radio that there were so many wrecks on south bound I-5, that there was a 13 mile back up between Fort Lewis (south of Tacoma) and Olympia. Why is it that people get crazy when the weather changes?
Remember~when it's raining turn your lights on and slow down a little.
