It doesn't rain often in NM but when it does it's usually a torrential downpour that, if you're in a car, the windshield wipers can't go fast enough for you to be able to see, and the roads flood badly near the curb almost immediately.
It doesn't matter what you are driving, that shit is dangerous to be in. Don't forget about the huge lightening all over the place, and the good chance you'll get hailed on too.
During the monsoon/rainy season here, I don't commute on the bike too much.
You couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitro glycerin plant!
Badasses might screw with another badass. Nobody screws with a nut job.
