It's been raining all day. It's been raining all week in fact, but today it has just poured and poured. The grassy depression next to the building I work in at the university is now a small lake. It makes me wonder what the roads will be like.

I already know...huge puddles where the water table has reached the surface and there is no unsaturated area left to infiltrate. Crazy folk in SUV's driving too fast because they feel safe. The elderly and the sane driving to slow just to be safe. The rain-slicked roads are a dangerous place to be when driving in the sunshine state.

Don't get me worng, I love the rain. I love the rainy season. It gives back some life to this overdrained swampland.

I am just not looking forward to driving home in it.

I just went out to my car. It won't start. It figures.
