Smile Raining, raining, la la LA la la

Whahooo it was raining cats and dogs here in the bay a couple nights ago, and I was very pleasently reminded how great it is to drive a Suby! A ward of warning to the wise though, as I quickly found out, it doesn't matter how many wheels are being powered, if your tire-tread fills up w/ water you're still going to hydro-plan. I was doing about 70mph on 280 by Woodside, and it just started BUCKETING down. there must have been 2 inches of standing water on the freeway, it was totally nuts. I was slowly heading for the Explorer in the lane next to me for few tense seconds but thanks to my wonderful RS, I pulled it back into line and slowed down a little to let my Bridgestones slick the water off

Lets all be careful out there so we don't bang up our fun toys this winter

Haha, everyone asks me "do you know this person?" or "did you go to Woodside High?"

I actually just moved into the area from Pacific Union College in Napa Valley, before that I lived in Loma Linda (Southern Cal) and before THAT Australia.

Sorry to hear about no rain
