I live in Los Angeles, I don't drive freeways unless I have to because of a couple of really bad car accidents I had. I had to drive 88 miles for a job interview today.....and of course it rained. I got one mile from home and there was a 5 car pile up, on the 110 Freeway, I barely made it another mile and there was a 4 car pile up! I almost turned around and went home, but I didn't want to lose this opportunity. I got on the 91 Freeway, and there was heavy traffic and steady rain, people were driving 75 miles an hour in thick traffic and rain. I finally got on the 15 Freeway, and the traffic was light, but the rain was even heavier, and I didn't know where I was and couldn't see very well. I got to the interview, it lasted about 2 hours and 45 minutes, and I think it went very well!
Luckily the long drive home was much more peaceful, lighter traffic, and only hit rain for a couple of minutes on the way home!
