boy when the storm hit last night i had to go out to help direct traffic due to roads flooding and trees down
(no one hurt in our area)
I stationed at an intersection where road flooded over.
I called my chief on the radio and told him where i was. and after that i couldn't call anyone due to so much radio traffic.
our company got 15 calls in the space of 1/2 hour and surrounding departments were busy as H3ll
so we were spread a bit thin.
funny part is people driving trucks and suv's were driving slow and careful but not the idiots in the small cars! :berserk2
seen more than a few hydroplane (the scared look on their faces was hilarious) :jackpot:

That is a wonderful job you did, and yes people do need to consider the situation while on road. But it is quite possible the people in small cars must have panicked for the reason they were in small cars and might get stuck.
