  • i hear a lot of encouragement to stay home if you possibly can when it snows and i hear a lot about avoiding black ice. i never hear about staying home if you possibly can when it rains. i think that is a shame.

    1. This is sad but also preventable. With that said, this is the third accident that resulted in a death in the last 3-4 months because of hydroplaning from eastbound traffic coming into westbound traffic at the exact same location. When do you think they will put some sort of barrier up to prevent this?

      1. I won’t even drive my charger on that stretch when it’s storming for just that reason!

    2. it rains here 10 months out of the year especially now that they are seeding the clouds again
