Rain, rain, go away

A long string of storms blew through Tennessee last night, and another line of storms came through here this morning. Is it bad that I never heard any of the tornado sirens that allegedly were going off everywhere? Or that I was driving preschoolers around in the minivan?

Also? I really hate driving on the interstate in a heavy, driving rain while other cars and trucks whip past me. I hate that big sheet of extra water that gets slapped over my windshield, temporarily blinding me. I also hate the feeling of being blown slightly to the side, almost like a precursor to hydroplaning. Shiver. Why do people drive so fast in such bad weather? Have they never skidded on a wet road? Do they have chains on their tires? Do they have a death wish?

I sound like a grumpy old lady, don’t I?
