And don't forget, if you pull off the road as far as possible, turn off your lights and get your foot off the brake. Better yet, just shut down.

It's what I like to call PMS Weather (Pre Monsoon Syndrome) :lol: At this time of the year and with this heat, it will be monsoon like. So rather than get hung up on trying to define it, I say just enjoy the show that is offered. :)
