A little over 8 years ago, my wife (very pregnant) and I were traveling down I-65 in our hometown of Birmingham. We were going about 50 Miles Per Hour in the rain,minding our own business and not doing anything crazy. I remember driving past a truck which was down in the median. It had obviously slid off the road in the rain. I made a comment about how we should be careful. Next thing I know, the back end of our car turned completely loose and we were ice skating on the interstate! We made a few circles in the middle of the interstate before sliding backwards off the road. Miraculously we didn't hit any other cars and Shelly or (the as yet unborn, unnamed Luke) were not injured. But the car was totaled. So now, if you see me driving in the rain, I'm usually the guy in the slow lane that's ticking everybody off. I learned a valuable lesson about how little control you have when driving on top of water. So...when it rains like it has this week....don't try to set land speed records on the interstate. It's just not worth it!

PS: An emergency vehicle just went by the radio station with a boat behind it! (At least it didn't LOOK like the Ark)
