How not to get killed on the way to Virginia Tech

Just minutes ago I was in some kind of freak rainstorm on the way to VT.

I’m driving along, maybe 30 miles outside of charlottesville, va when it starts to sprinkle. Over the course of the next 10 seconds that sprinkle turned to a god damned waterfall. I shit you not when I say I could have filled a glass with water just by holding it out the window for a few seconds. Visibility beyond the front of my hood was somewhere between 5 and 10 feet, so I could either stay way back, drive slow and hope to god there was no reason for the guy in front of me to slam on his brakes (or the road curved, I couldn’t see the lines), or do what I did… Tailgate so close the SUV ahead of me blocked most of the rain and rely on my cat-like reflexes to save my ass. Needless to say it was a rather stressful 5 miles before the rain just stopped as suddenly as it had begun. WHOO HOWDY good times…
