For the past 3-4 days we've been searching for products and sources for our bathroom remodeling project. This was a rewarding few days ...we discovered fresh info on materials and their installation. A few decisions were reached and we hope to begin sometime soon.
However, the point of this blog is not remodeling, it's about driving hundreds of miles during very heavy rain storms... and using the freeways (405 and 5) to visit far afield suppliers: Lynnwood -- Seattle -- Puyallup. (roughly a 60 mile one-way trip)
After many hours in the car, I now want to enact two new laws, effective immediately:
1. Large, multi-wheel trucks are NOT allowed to drive on the freeways during rain storms. The amount of water these trucks spray into the air is massive and, at times, makes car windshield wipers useless.
2. Police are forbidden from giving tickets. In fact, only if there's an accident, a wildly erratic driver screwing up traffic flow or if there's some other out of the ordinary event, are the police permitted to stop their patrol cars. The new function of police is simple: Keep traffic moving and to not interfere with traffic flow.*
*No, I did not get a ticket nor was I stopped by a cop.
You've seen it, how traffic flow gets messed up everytime cops are seen with their nasty radar guns or they've pulled someone over for a ticky-tacky ticket. Your drive home gets longer everytime cop patrol cars are working on their ticket book quotas.
