For those of you not blessed enough to live in northern California today is the official start to our IDIOT SEASON. Yes, it is the first day of real rain and apparently everyone pulled out their idiot card, checked to make sure they were up on their dues and hit the road. Not that they had driving manners to start with, but what little was there has been washed away by that mysterious moisture falling from the sky. I wanted to scream (and did a few times) at those not realizing that the beast that I drive does require that car length I leave between myself and the car ahead of me. It IS NOT intended to be a nice little spot for you to pop in your miniwhatever and slam on the brakes! Thank goodness I'm well insured.
