Oh gosh almost my time to take the wheel and here in Ohio it’s pouring rain. It’s gonna be one of those slow and steady nights. Don’t like driving In the rain and it’s nighttime. Gonna be a long night. Delivery at 8 in the morning.

I hate driving in the rain especially at night. When other trucks past me I kick it down and put distance between me and the truck. The wash from the rain makes it really hard to see. The worst was one night around dusk when it was raining and I was right on the edge of the front and the sun was setting in front of us. So your dealing with the glare of the Sun and the wash of the rain at the same time. I just slow down and put distance between me and the other trucks. Some of those guys just keep flying.... maybe just because I'm new but I don't understand how they can drive like that?

Yes I made it. Driving in New York is rough enough up and down and round and round and it never stopped raining. The trucks were flying around me and for a couple of seconds u can’t see nonething from their spray ...but more power to them I like me better than that..the roads are rough- knocking u around in the truck — and as always plenty of road construction and rain and rain and rain..........

I’m glad you made it through. We just left NJ and Baltimore areas...raining almost the entire time. Yuck! We are stopped for a short break then heading back out.

Be safe lady!

Despise driving in the rain especially at night. Guess where I've been the past 4 days? Driving in the rain!

Nebraska all the way east up in to Maine and Vermont.
