OK, people. I understand that early this year it felt as if summer came early, but now it’s raining. You know, that’s stuff coming from the sky? No, the set is not leaking – it’s rain.
Now, when it rains, the freeways get slippery, so that usually means those things that go on the freeways – cars – should go slower. And that’s dependent upon on you.
This is especially important on the Pasadena Freeway, guys. I drove home Friday (one of the days I work 4 to midnight) at a crawl because four cars collided right at the Avenue 52 onramp to the freeway – the onramp literally just a couple of yards from my exit. I might have gotten alarmed, too, since one of the cars was the same make and model as Trinity’s, but I knew he was already at home. It never fails – when it rains, there’s always a crazy accident on the Pasadena Freeway.
I love driving the exhilarating curves of the Pasadena Freeway as much as anyone else. But when you take L.A.’s curviest and narrowest freeway and add water, it eventually equals an accident, probably an overturned car somewhere in the equation. So, red BMW 850i that sped by me at at least 70 mph in the left lane tonight, that might very well be you sometime soon.
But, if you like to see your car do flips, go for it. I’ll wave as I drive by.
