  1. I’ve just returned to CA after a 20 year hiatus, and was reminded yesterday that every time it rains all hell breaks loose.  The problem seems to be that no one can remember from the last time that when it rains after a dry spell there is a lot of built up oil and rubber on the road which makes it very slippery, and a good time not to drive like a bank robber.  It’s lind of like watching birds slam into a glass window over and over again.
