Get ready for another one, folks! Home Theater Therapy and Advice, 101 . I'm driving along 287 Bergan, NJ. Yesterday, I thought I'd leave at 3 PM to beat the traffic, turns out just 10 minutes before there was a horrific accident that caused the lanes to be closed and we came to a dead stop for an hour. I didn't mind that, I was in no rush. But today... I see Dark Clouds approaching, so I head home early. I hate driving in Heavy Rain. I merge on fine. Speed up to 65, slow up around exit 41 under the bridge where it always slows....thanks to that high speed left exit merge. Then, the deluge starts. Now, granted, I'm in the middle lane on a three way road. But, It pours so heavily and so fast up untill I reach about exit 51, that you can barley see 5 inches ahead. Blink, and y ou could loose site of the lane you are in. Thank goodness for red brake lights. Now, for those who know 287, you know there are wonderful speed demon truckers on that road. EVERYONE on the lane is going 45-55 MPH, even in the fast lane. I was going the speed everyone else was, so as not to cause a traffic bit behind me, or an accident. But, every now and then, I'd hear a horn blaring at me from behind...of course it's a truck, and he passes me on the right. This happened a good three times. I've learned long ago not to be preasured by truckers on that road, so I just ignore them.... but I was so busy trying to conentrate on the road behind me, I didn't look at what everyone else was doing....so maybe I shuold have sped up a bit more.... Anyway, the rain finally stops by that bridge over the tree ravine. Around exit 52, we all speed up to 70, and head out and away... Now, why are Truckers usually the ones who are bitching about how fast you are going? Do they really have such strict schedules, that the bosses would w ant them to be unsuafe in driving conditions such as the one above, and disobey the law, or are they using the power of their big trucks to their advantage, by preasuring people to go faster? And of course, when they pass you, their tire backlash of water causes you to slow down even more... Ah well...I'm staying home tommorow thanks to a personal trainer appointment. I'll get one good relaxing day yet .
