Today we're off to have a girl's day out. My daughter and the mini-chicks will hit the closest manicure salon for pedicures for Nanna and Momma and manicures for the mini-chicks.
As forecast, we drove all day yesterday in the rain. Monsoon rain. As in total-lack-of-visibility rain. I have a few suggestions for those who drive in monsoonal rain.
One: If you insist on driving twenty to thirty miles per hour slower than everyone else, please stay in the right lane. That way you'll lower your chances of being rear-ended in the rain by fifty percent.
Two: Don't take your life in your hands by zipping from lane to lane. I can't see you even when you stay in one lane, let alone two.
Three: TURN ON YOUR LIGHTS! I'm not worried about whether you can see. But your brake lights just might make the difference in whether I rear-end you in the rain. Or your headlights in my mirror could prevent me from pulling out in front of you and getting us both killed.
Four: If you're afraid of driving in the rain, or the visibility is that poor, GET OFF THE ROAD. The time you spend having a cup of coffee or just relaxing may save your life.
We arrived safely and had a nice evening with the family. May you all have a wonderful weekend.
