Night driving with pouring rain is difficult driving. The water can create slippery surfaces and oncoming traffic¡¦s lights are reflected off the water with blinding effects. If you remove the image of oncoming traffic and place yourself on a deserted road with heavy rain, the experience becomes very lonely and desolate. You hope you don¡¦t get a flat in this isolated place. On such drives, I appreciate turning that bend or breaking over the crest of that hill and in the distance I can see a soft glow of distant light shatter the darkness. I know there is a community of lights and life before me and it is a most welcome sight and warming experience.
