Waiiiiiii!!! This is great! It's POURING rain down in record levels again! In Phoenix, this means that streets are getting flooded, and cars getting stalled.. all lots of fun!!

*bounces around* Jamie loves the rain!! =^________^= I have to drive about 40 miles in it too today, and I'm pretty excited! ^__^ I love driving in the rain, and at least know how to, unlike a lot of the drivers around here that think of rain as a foreign object. ^^;

*bounces around* time to go take a shower! And listen to the thunder! =^__^=
And club day was cancelled.. so I have the morning free to get ready and of course, the ever present homework. :P I will probably leave a bit earlier as well. ^__^

The last two times we've gone to the Applebee's at Broadway and Rural, we've come during storm days. The parking lot there becomes a river during any sort of heavy rain, and both sides Broadway Road are quickly covered in two feet of water. Kinda strange being in the middle or left lanes of traffic and still plowing through six inches of the wet stuff.

Yeah, great drainage there.

Lost an alternator to that corner first time. >_< I wasn't driving this time. :P

My workplace is right near Papago Park, so we're on high ground. Not that it's really raining much at this point in time ...

Re:
Are you in Mesa? It's pouring sheets of rain down here in Phoenix.. walk outside, and 5 seconds later you're soaked.. the road to my apartments isn't even driveable, there's a good 6 inches of water. O-o.......the drainage systems here is really bad..

My apartment's at McKellips and Country Club ... work is at Priest and Washington (Tempe/Phoenix border).

Re:
Oh! I have no idea where that is except that it's around 20 minutes from here, I think.. ^^;; I'm at Dunlap and 19th.. But I'm really bad with street names of any places outside metro-phoenix area.. ^^;;;;;;;

Basically, if McKellips Road didn't back into a hill in Papago Park, it would turn into Van Buren Street. Though I'm not sure how many of the folks in Mesa would be happy with that concept. :P

Country Club Dr is State Highway 87, and it runs through the center of Mesa. Further south, it becomes Arizona Avenue, and runs through downtown Chandler, and past both Chandler and Hamilton High Schools (my home turf). North of my apartment, Country Club becomes Beeline Highway and goes towards Payson.

It's closer to 30 minutes from where you are from here - CASFS meets at the JB's at Indian School and the I-17, and that's already 25 minutes away from home. (And then there's the Embassy Suites where we hold the conventions at I-17 and Greenway, which is even further.)

I ♥ 雨!
Around here (19th & Glendale) it's not too bad. Damn it. Ha ha. Can't say I recommend the shower; there's a good change of getting fried. lol =P I love the rain, though. I think that's why my last name is Raines; it was intentional. ;)

Re: I ♥ 雨!
haha, I just realize I live like 2 miles from you. Technically, I live on 23rd Avenue & Citrus. I'm across the alley from the houses on the access road to I-17. Fun factoid.

Re: I ♥ 雨!
Waii!! That's so cool! =^__^=

I'm as 23rd and Dunlap, technically.. right across from AiPX.. ^^ Heh, someday I'll see you randomly somewhere, and be like, "I know him!"

Probably. Maybe... well, I don't leave too often, so ^^;;;;;;;

LOL!! To do that you would have to be flying, since I'm on the second floor. =^__^=

Re: I ♥ 雨!
^_^;;; I don't have the time to spend much time on aim recently. I'm on off and on, but it's finals for the next two weeks, and I won't have much time on AIM until then. ^___^;;
