Slippery When Wet

Yesterday I witnessed two accidents that I am certain were somehow linked to the wet weather. The first was on Dobbin Road near the Starbucks around 1:00 PM. Two mini vans, headed in the same direction, had run into each other. The second one was on Route 29 at the underpass with Route 32. There was car off in a ditch on the southbound side of the road. It was around 2:30 PM.

This morning, driving down Snowden River Parkway, I was forced to detour on to Route 175 (Rouse Parkway) because a tractor trailer had overturned beneath the Route 175 overpass. The police had blocked off all of the westbound lanes so that they could get a crane in there to lift the truck back up. There were several near misses as drivers tried to figure out what they were going to do now that the road was blocked.

Sheesh! The auto body shops must love this weather.
