It's raining here for days. We haven't had rain for awhile here during the summer, so of course it was welcomed. Especially that we were under a burn ban.
But it's raining and raining and raining. And while I don't mind getting wet, it does makes the sun hide and the gloomy sky makes it seems a bit sad.
One thing I'm glad the rain makes many motorists stay home. That way i can get about my schedule in a safer manner. Lafayette drivers are some of the most dangerous!
But tomorrow is school and all of them will be out doing the 'go to work' mad dash , hopped up on coffee or hungover or on pills. It will be scary.
Just Friday, while bringing baby girl home from school, we almost had an accident. I was sitting at the red light. Both arrows turned green and the motorists went. Then it turned green for us to go. I was about to go, when I thought I heard a vehicle approaching from the right and I'm thinking there is no way a vehicle can come up so fast at a red light. Then I heard the voice said, put down the fork and get ready to drive. I did. (I was licking a fork from the biscoff)
Half way out into the intersection, and this vehicle just came straight through the red on their side from my right. I stopped and so glad I didn't press my gas to go quickly. Then I drove slowly on through. I kept wondering if I had just seen what I had just seen. This vehicle wasn't speeding, it was just driving along like nothing was wrong.
My daughter said, her mouth was so wide open, but she couldn't say anything. She is 8.
I cannot tell you the amount of accidents I've avoided since living here. God has been my protector.
Welcome to another Monday y'all! Let's dance and make it a great day, rain or not! So much to be thankful for.
