Tuesday Expert Advice

Dear Cupcake,

I live in Los Angeles and I have a question I hope you can help me with. It seems that El Nino has finally arrived and today we had our first huge downpour of rain. Buckets of water from the sky. Fluid leaking from the heavens. My dilemma involves how I am supposed to behave in my automobile while this wet deluge is falling from above. Should I put my breaks on every 15 seconds whilst I keep my eyes peeled on my rearview mirror hoping no one rear ends me or should I just drive as usual, acting as if nothing is wrong?

    I live in Washington where…people are used to rain all. the. time. Some still don’t have the answer to that question.

    And in Arizona, where it’s dry, arid, waterless ALL the time.
    Except now. Phoenix folks are frolicking in the tiny puddles in the street. Lord, help us.

    And you people in North Carolina, when there is a massive electrical storm with much wind STOP PULLING OVER AND SITTING UNDER THE 3 MASSIVE WILLOW OAKS IN MY FRONT YARD. Those things weight a billion tons per branch and will Kill Ya. Find yourself a nice weeping willow or creep home, for crying out loud. Jeeze.

    I think when God gave out brains you thought he said rains and you said, “Oh no! That would scare me.”
