Good morning.As I was headed off to the club it started to rain a good clip. Did not have my rain gear with me.Put a call to Mike to bring my gear. On the way home the torrential rain hit us.Had to stop to pick up a few things first. It was coming down so hard and had a hard time in seeing. I was driving over 55 miles or so. Then all these cars zooming by and most of them do not have any lights on. They do not give a care about others driving.This was a very hard rain coming down.Finally got home and bless my self.I made it.LOL. Then noticed that there was a few accident above on the highway. Not sure how serious it was.But it was bad.Like a monsoon. Glad I am home and out of this.PT this afternoon. Have a good one. photo is public domaine Video is Leon Russell shelter people

People are careless, they drive as they were alone on the road. We have many accidents during summer, mainly the tourists.

It is against the law to not have headlights on when it's raining. There aren't enough cops to enforce such laws.

When I drive in rain that hard I usually put on my flashers so I can be seen and like you I slow down. If I can get off the interstate I will and let it pass. Glad you got home safe.

We had similar rain on Tuesday over here, and I have to say that careless driving in nasty weather is a worldwide phenomena. Honestly, people just don't care. I'm surprised there aren't more accidents on the road sometimes.

Accidents happen during heavy rains, and floods as well. The roads here are filled with manholes, it's very dangerous
