We drove into torrential rain that reduced visibility to ten feet. Since we were on I-95, the major north-south route on the east coast, I was sure someone would crash into the trailer. We were moving at 5-10 MPH and no where near an exit. Pulling off the road was a possibility, but I wouldn't have felt any safer sitting there waiting for an impact. You really couldn't see the what lane you were in anyway. God helped us through that storm, but I honestly don't plan to tow the Silver Shadow in the dark, or in torrential rain, ever again. To be fair, even without towing the LG, the experience would have been harrowing enough. Those southern thunderstorms can produce an unbelieveable amount of rainfall in just a few minutes.
BTW- I mentioned this story to a police officer from FL, telling him I had my flashers on during the incident. He told me that driving with flashers on is illegal in almost every state. Who knew?
