Water Falling From the Sky!

Last night on the commute home, Lady Luck and I got caught in a righteous downpour. I've been carpooling with her most days for the last several weeks.

Getting rained on while riding doesn't bother me, but dodging rain-crazed cagers does. We get three little drops of rain and people freak out and forget how to drive. I think they panic because there is WATER!

FALLING!!

FROM THE SKY!!!

FALLING!!! SKY!!!!

THE SKY IS FALLING!! AND IT'S ALL WET AND OOGY!!!

Of course, we did have an epic (relative to Arizona) rain storm last night. Many (most, really) roads flooded since the storm drains here don't usually deal with much rain. Flooding makes the roads fall apart, since a small pothole mixed with flowing water and SUVs quickly turns into a large pothole. Plus everything else in this state gets ruined whenever there's any weather because the whole place is made out of papier mache and chicken wire.

So between the hazardous road conditions and moronic drivers, I was ok with carpooling last night.

Gary - It's been a long, f*cked up week. Let's hope for better luck this coming week.

We're in a drought and could use weeks of rain. The corn plants look like pineapple plants.

And I like riding in the rain.

My husband and I got rained on while riding our motorcycles today. It wasn't too bad and we were on a back country road. Doesn't bother us one bit and luckily we got home before the really bad rainpour happened.
