Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Driving weather! Always a sound topic for a discussion. Hopefully an amicable one.
Thanks Elmore for answering my question.
My residence has been mostly in these areas: the Lake Erie environs, New England, and of all places New Mexico, where they definitely know about snow.
I was and remain sadly disappointed with drivers around Phoenix, Arizona, where they don't know the first thing about driving in the RAIN. That's all it takes to confuse the drivers. That kind of desert climate gets cloudbursts, monsoon-style, and when it does rain, the rain just dumps on you all at once. Then there is all that dust and sand about, which as one radio personality observed, in the rain becomes like ball bearings for automobiles.
Don't even get me started on flash floods in desert country.
