    I drove through a few inches of rain today. It was past the curb on the belt parkway. Autozone's parking lot was covered with about 2 inches.

    This is not going to be a fun day.

    We're talking about the northeast here. Anything that potentially inconveniences them is a fucking tragedy.

    damn right, it took me 2.5 hours to get to work today because these jackasses do like 27 mph.

    It's supposed to go up to 4-6" though.

    My school is about to go under. All the drainage is basically overflowing, and most of the curbed streets have like 2" of standing water over them. Random streams have grown out of nowhere, and theres about 10" of water in a nearby in-ground concrete pinic table area.

    Arc? Not yet, but damn - if it doesn't stop raining I think my new major will be ocean engineering.

    They do. a few days ago when it was raining hard, they all slowed down to about 45. They stayed out of my way in the left lane, but as soon as one wouldn't yield I went around them, passed a statie in the right lane. he chases me up to 65 mph (the speed limit) then yells at me over the loud speaker to slow the fuck down.

    There was probably an advisory or something. But still, why should I have to do under the speed limit if my car was completely capable of doing 65 in the rain.

    Because the other morons on the road would panic if they hydroplaned at speed, and would crash, killing 104467937 people. Obviously.

    No, I get the same thing, OR I can the morons who won't pass a semi on the highway - so I end up stuck in its rooster-tail of water - making me blind.

    Unless the visability is bad, I'll usually do the speed limit, or higher in the rain.

    Depends, with the heavy downpour, I wasn't going to push my luck with speeding. If it was a light rain I'd stay at 70-75.

    The Belt Parkway is a flooding highway, it floods, puddles, it's not straight and is just a POS to drive on in any other condition besides dry. I defenitly wouldn't have driven much faster than 60-65 today on it.

    Personally, I won't be happy until it's also raining fire in NYC.
