Downpour

OK, Texas has some crazy weather. And Texans love it that way. It makes for good conversation. I just watched a tag team weather report in which a male and female reporter talked about thunderstorms, tornado warnings, and golf-ball-size hail for about an hour without a commercial break. Well, it may have been only 20 minutes, but really, how many times can you repeat the same doppler weather images.

It didn't look that bad outside, so I decided to go get gas for my car. I got my gas—having to dip into our retirement account—and proceeded back home. All was well until I was about 6 minutes from the house. It started with a light drizzle, and then out of nowhere BAM! It was like a fireman aimed his water hose right at my windshield. I turned the wipers on high, to no avail. I turned on the high beams. Although it didn't help me see the road or potential pedestrians, I could see the rain very clearly. I probably should not have been driving as fast as I was, given the conditions. But rather than slow down, I decided to crank up the worship CD and sing a little louder. I couldn't see any better, but it made the ride more exhilarating.
