Ok, to start off, this may be long. Sorry.
It starts a few days ago when the high was like 55. Was the same the next day,had some real good showers in the afternoon, last night however, the
ride home was...well.....nerve wracking. My car handles quite well on dry pavement, snow and ice, but when it is raining, my car just loves to
hydroplane,(I have new tires) Seeing at night is bad enough, as my headlights really, really suck, as they are plastic, and they are oxidized. When
the roads are wet, it's really hard to see(got 20/20 vision) If I didn't have fog lights, I'd be screwed. So It's pouring down rain, roads were
flooded. Suprised I didn't run off the road a few times, because it was raining so hard I couldn't see the road barely. But I made it home. I
checked the radar, The line of storms I drove through had possible tornadic activity. I was laughing hysterically. Thankfully a friend followed me
home to make sure I made it.
Now today, woke up, it was in the upper 50's and nice, tonight, the wind is howling, it's supposed to be in the teens, and it's snowing. It's
about a 40 degree tempture change in less than a few hours. The wind sounds like a huge industrial fan blowing into a 3 inch wide real long piece of
Don't get me wrong, I guess that for 1 inch of rain, it would equal to 10 inches of snow. I don't have my rain gague out, but I'd venture a guess
that we got at least 2-3 inches just last night, and probably another 1-2 inches during the day. But if all that rain were snow, WOW.....thats ALOT of
BUT, there is a saying here in Indiana "If you don't like the weather, just wait a minute, it will change."
Any other Hoosiers have any stories about the weather this week?
