I often tell people that I would much rather be killed in a tornado than that awful Phoenix traffic.
This is an easy way to calm down my mother who thinks I am going to be killled in a storm.
After 2.5 years here- I have come to a realization that I might actually have more chance being killed here on the roads due to weather. Today my husband hydroplaned in his truck and slammed into a wall at 60mph. Luckily he had his seat belt on and had no injuries.
The only thing predictable about the weather here is that it is UNPREDICTABLE . Driving fast in the rain here is a big NO NO. Quite a bit different than the Phoenix roads.
Oklahoma rule = RESPECT THE WEATHER
