Driving in the rain — this may save your life
  
GOOD VISION IN A DOWNPOUR 
How to achieve good vision while driving during
a heavy downpour.We are not sure why it is so effective;
just try this method when it
rains heavily. This method was told
by a Police friend who had experienced and
confirmed it. It is useful….even driving
at night.Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or
FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy
downpour, yet the visibility in front of
the windshield is still bad……

In the event you face such a
situation, just try your SUN GLASSES (any
model will do), and miracle! All of a
sudden, your visibility in front of
your windshield is perfectly clear,
as if there is no rain.

Make sure you always have a pair of SUN
GLASSES in your car, as you are not only
helping yourself to drive safely with good vision,
but also might save your friend’s life
by giving him this idea..

Try it yourself and share it with your
friends! Amazing, you still
see the drops on the
windshield, but not the sheet of
rain falling.

You can see where the rain bounces off the
road. It works to eliminate the
“blindness” from passing semi’s
spraying you too.

Or the “kickup” if you are following
a semi or car in the rain. They
ought to teach that little tip in
driver’s training. It really
does work..

This warning is a good one! I
wonder how many people know about
this~

A 36 year old female had an accident several
weeks ago and totaled her car. A
resident of Kilgore , Texas
she was traveling between Gladewater
& Kilgore. It was raining, though not excessively,
when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and
literally flew through the air. She
was not seriously injured but very stunned
at the sudden occurrence!

When
she explained to the highway patrolman
what had happened he told her something
that every driver should know –

 NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON 
She thought she was
being cautious by setting the cruise
control and maintaining a safe consistent
speed in the rain. But the
highway patrolman told her that if the cruise
control is on when your car begins to hydro-plane
and your tires lose contact with the pavement,
your car will accelerate to a higher rate
of speed making you take off
like an airplane. She told the patrolman
that was exactly what had occurred.
>
The patrolman said this warning should
be listed, on the driver’s seat
sun-visor – NEVER USETHE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN
THE PAVEMENT IS
WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning.
We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and
drive a safe speed – but we don’t tell them
to use the cruise control only when the
pavement is dry.
The only person the accident victim found,
who knew this (besides the patrolman),
was a man who had a similar accident,
totaled
his car and sustained severe
injuries.

NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota
Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to
set the cruise control when the
windshield wipers are on. If you send this
to 15 people and only one of them
doesn’t know about this, then it was all
worth it.. You might have saved
a life.

I wrote this for Sara almost a year ago. I ran across it today, revised it a little and now want to share it with you again!

What about God?

I like walking in the rain, because no one sees me crying. – Unknown

When I am sad
when I am blue

Walking in the rain’s
 what I like to do

If I get wet
I don’t even care

And it doesn’t matter
if at me people stare

‘Cause this I know
they can’t see me cry

I don’t have to answer
when they ask me why

I walk in the rain
so I can cry alone

And the pain I feel
I keep to my own.

Wishing the rain
stops without delay

Wishing to see
a rainbow display

Wishing the sun
comes to stay

Wishing to go
outside and play

Wishing for more 
time in a day

Sometimes we’re wishing
our lives away

Water

the sustainer

of all life

*

Rain

falls down

upon the earth

*

Rivers

are then

with fish rife

*

Fields

bring forth

crops new birth

*

Water

without you

is no life.

*

Therein

we find

your true worth

Shelter From The Rain

Run for shelter
from the rain

Some type covering
I may gain

Where’s there relief
from this pain?

My head exploding
am I insane?

Holding an umbrella
up over me

Gives little shelter
from rising sea

For depression won’t
let me be

When will I
again be happy?

All I do
cry and cry

No matter how
hard I try

The faith that
I once rely

The worry does
to me deny

Oh Lord, please
hear my prayer

Have You one
blessing to spare?

For I need
Your tender care

To save me
from my despair!
