It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

As of 9:30 PM PDT on October 16, 2004:

Scattered showers will increase across southern Los Angeles County this evening. Steadier rain will develop overnight through 3 am over the region…and there is a slight chance of thunderstorms later tonight as well. Heavier rainfall overnight may cause some minor street flooding and ponding of water on roadways. With this first rain of the season roadways will be very slick due to a six-month accumulation of dirt and oil on the Road surfaces. Motorists are urged to exercise caution and slow down when encountering wet roads overnight.

    Ha ha ha ha ha, like *that’s* going to stop them from speeding! :o

  2. Driving home at 2am Saturday night/Sunday morning, I must’ve seen like 20+ wrecked cars on the 101 south and 5 south. I almost joined them, when my car started hydroplaning toward an SUV stopped in the middle of the 101. Luckily I regained control when I released the brakes, and changed lanes in time. That’s what I get for having near-bald quasi-performance tires on my car; I wasn’t even going fast.

    Hypocritical much, Mr. Zoom-Through-Big-Puddles? :D

  3. Bah. The average driver in California drives the same as the average driver anywhere (i.e., mostly badly). There’s just way more of them around at any given moment.

    Proof we need more bicycles and mass transit. ;)
