Yes, rain as well, J. Apparently they've never been in a car that started hydroplaning. THAT will scare the wits out of one, and possibly a few other things!! Definitely time for panic mode. You don't even realize the car is hydroplaning until it either 'sits back down on the road' (that sudden sickening thump and OMG moment) or you go to change lanes and it's "Whoaaaa Nelly!" We do occasionally get some real drenchers here and 'little rivers' running down the roads.

Sadly, same with the 'natives' here as well Aelin. After living the largest part of my life without one, and having to have one for work, I absolutely don't want or need one. And after watching how people act with them I don't want or need one, either. I've watched or heard of too many accidents happening because of them - or potential accidents that could have happened. Too many people seem to have them permanently affixed to their heads and hands, and/or are ignoring their kids because of them. Won't talk to anyone unless they can text them. It's insane. And BEWARE if you're a pedestrian.

On occasions...... Like every day.... When I was in Tampa a few years ago, it was pretty much every afternoon, seems like. And it wasn't just a light rain, either.. I mean the frogs had rowboats and life jackets!  :rainy:


Lol... :newyears: Rod!

Like every day...frogs and rowboats. :tearlaugh:

Oh, tell me about it... I don't know how many times I've been wheeling a printer down the hallway at the hospital, behind some buttmuncher walking along with all 4 of their brain cells concentrating on that 2-inch screen. Then they get a text or something, and without warning they just STOP. You have no idea how much I'd love to just up-end one of them with a 100-pound HP color printer. Idiots.

Same thing happens in the grocery store and the same compunction on my part. And they never move over to the side of the aisle. No, they stand right in the middle don't they?

Had fireworks here at 8:00 PM last night. Was wondering where in the world that would have been 12:00 midnight. Itty Bitty looked for a hiding place, and because that did not help, she jumped into my arms to feel safe. I petted her and comforted her. She was literally shaking from the fright.

ever seen what  we  call a  frog strangler  rain  big  heavy  drops that  hit  frog  in  mouth   and strangle  him  and  these  fools  on their cell phones  just make  matters  worse  cause  seein  in a frog  strangler  rain  is a hard thing  to do
can drive in snow  and  icy conditions  but  sure  dont  like  black  ice at all  heat is  hard on  tires  when you got  a load in the  trailer  and  sure  as  hell you dont  want  to blow a  front  tire  on an 18 wheeler  that is  why  you run brand  new  steel belted  radials  on the  front  axle cost  a little  more but  beats  goin off  in the  bushes or  runnin into the other  lane  of  traffic if your  front  tire  blows or you loose  air  presssure

Yup, cats and dogs and veterans do NOT like fireworks - AT ALL. Lightning and thunder don't seem to phase my cat but I remember my Afghan trying to crawl under the waterbed when a bolt struck near our house. Not like he could have crawled under ANY bed ever unless it was a hospital bed style. He was almost 6 feet tall on his hind legs.

You ever drive down a mountain pass on a 19% grade in a snow storm or snow packed roads, Fafnir? A mountain on one side and a chasm on the other? Some of them are riding their brakes so hard you can see the smoke coming off of them. Get away! Get away! Cars too with out of state plates. You know then they're panicking 'newbies' - right?

I've been known to "accidentally" bump into them (none too gently) at the grocery store when they pull that nonsense. I don't have to be on my best 'professional' behavior at the grocery store. Usually it comes as a shock that there is actually someone else in the vicinity...  :ummm: And I'm just waiting for one of them to get an attitude.... I'd love an excuse to bounce a can of pork & beans off their forehead...  :dispute:

My question would have to be.... WTF are they doing on a mountain road in a snowstorm to begin with?? If I'm gonna drive up Pike's Peak, I'm gonna do it in SUMMER!  :tearlaugh:

I know. It's like everyone's in their own little cellphone world and they're oblivious to everything and everyone else around them. I haven't run into anyone yet purposely but if they don't move to me saying "Behind you!" then I may be tempted.

Hubby, wifey, elevendy kidseys.   I have on occasion just flat left the store when I see something like a cloud of retards like that coming through.  I can come in later.  I wanna see what they arrived in.  Be it pickup, SUV, SUB, spaceship or VeeDub.  Coulda been a combine tractor too!  LOL!   The leader of the pack seems to be daring someone to say something.  OK,   :newyears: :ny4: :ty01:
