It Was A Dark & Stormy Night....

Well, it was.

Actually, it was a wild and windy day, and a wilder night. Driving home from work last night I was driving through rain which was falling horizontally, mixed with whirling leaves and the occasional twig.

It was frightening to realise how little concession most drivers were making to the conditions - lots of tailgating and so on, despite standing water, poor visibility and lots of pther hazards. *sigh*

Relieved to note that no water has come into the house, however, which gives me encoragement to belive that the flood-risk really was fixed, when the work was done 2 years ago.

A silver lining to all the black clouds, perhaps...

I had a drive like that last week - no fun at all.

Round here - don't know if it's the same in your parts - I'm amazed at how many people don't seem to realise they've got one headlight broken, and/or completely misaligned. There seem to be loads every day.

There is a lot of that about.

In their defence, however, lights are so bright these days it can be difficult to tell if you've one out, if you don't make the effort to actually check by looking as opposed to assuming you'll notice because you suddenly can't see so well..
