It's Raining, It's Pouring… Drive People.

26 Apr

If you haven’t heard… the midwest is experiencing a flood. I moved OUT of Seattle to get away from the rain, but nontheless it has followed me. Wah, wah, wah.

What I don’t understand is the temporary paralyzation that people get while driving when it is raining. It’s like drivers have snorkel fins taped to their feet just in case they get washed away and need to swim to shore, but in the meantime it affects their ability to push the gas pedal and move forward.

Just because it is raining you aren’t going to melt…unless you are the Wicked Witch of the West (which if you are in that case you should be at home back in OZ wrapped in garbage bags hiding under plastic furniture… and unless your car is created from the remnants of the Wicked Witch of the West it’s not going to melt either, so I think you are safe to drive like a normal person).

It’s as if maybe everyone is in awe of the shiny wet stuff on the pavement that is so distracting that they can’t remember how to drive… they must be new at this or something? It’s rain. It doesn’t bite. It’s not Robert Pattinson in Twilight raining down in his sparkly glory (look away from the sparkle!). You can still function and all your limbs still work efficiently in it.

I suggest this when driving in the rain… look away from the shiny wet stuff, push the gas pedal, and go. Thank you!
