We get Lake Effect weather that whips storm cells (also called line squalls) across the landscape to engulf an area in torrential rain and then pass on. On one of my first trips to the allergy doc in Kitchener, I drove through no fewer than four such storm cells on my way home, each more blinding than the last. Just at the town boundary, I saw a SUV hydroplane off the road and into the ditch, sending up a tsunami that flooded the road even more and damn near sent me into the ditch, too. Fortunately, I was pooting along in third gear at rather less than 50 kph, so my wheels remained in contact with the pavement; any faster, and I would have shared the SUV driver's fate.
Today, it's just grey and chilly. Very Monday. We're working. Nothing else to do.
