Don't Drive Fast When It's Raining
Lots of rain today along I-81 this afternoon on the way back today, which meant lots white knuckle driving and accidents. I hate that ominous feeling of looking into a sky of dark gray ahead, and seeing the survivors of the storm coming with their lights on in the opposite direction. When rain really starts coming and visibility is zero, I am tempted to just pull over, but you can't really do that or you risk getting rear ended.

As we were just getting into the serious stuff I saw a truck moving a little too fast for conditions behind me and moved over into the right lane for him. A minute later, Mr. Speedy Truckdriver was jackknived in the median of the freeway. Traffic slowed in front of him and he couldn't stop in time. Oops.
