I hate driving to town when there is rain and storms.
I don’t see well when the rain is falling hard. I don’t need to wear glasses, but I have trouble seeing in the rain. My vision gets blurry and I get nervous behind the wheel. The last time there was a major storm, I got into an accident and I had several thousands of dollars of damage to my car. The insurance company took forever to settle the claim and I had to use a rental for weeks. Last month though, I had to drive to Tampa to pick up my sister. She flew into town from Philadelphia so she could visit for a week. The drive to the airport in Tampa was filled with traffic and mud puddles. The last few miles through downtown were the worst. The rain was coming down so quickly that I couldn’t see the car in front of me. I almost hit the guy three or four different times when I had to brake quickly. To make things even worse, my AC stopped blowing cold air halfway to the Tampa airport. I couldn’t figure out why the AC wasn’t working, but the fan wouldn’t work on heat either. The windows started to fog up. By the time I picked up my sister, my nerves were shot. My hands were shaking and I was ready to cry. My sister offered to drive us back to Tampa Bay and I didn’t say no. She did a much better job driving in the rain and we both reached our destination safely.
