Question What is it about a good rain?

Is there any reason for people to forget how to drive just because it is drizzling a little?

People is huge SUVs driving at 20 under the limit I can understand. Lifted pickups with giant mudder wheels I can't see doing that, but I did.

Cops diverting traffic around a flooded underpass. I asked the cop, why and he answered, Closed due to flood. I "eyeballed" the flood, which looked like 6 inches of water because it only covered 1.5 of 4 lanes and said, I can make that, easy. He just gave me a look and asked if I had a stock muffler.. I told him I got this thing used and followed the detour...

5pm, dark as night with rain and people still drive around without headlights on..

2wd pickup tries to do a launch at the light and spins his tires. While the grandma in the Oldsmobile in the next lane just pulls away...

That's right, the intercooler was much much cooler than normal. Tho, it wouldn't go below 80 degrees during the day... Wonder what happened when it got cooler and rainy at night?

Heh, I hit a few puddles (not intentionally) and splashed up some water and filled my upturned alarm siren. Let me tell you, it sounds funny when it's full of water (as if I haven't heard it before). Poured it out and set it back and it works fine again.
