On the way home from picking Kam up yesterday, we were all smiles in the car!  The air was warmer than it has been for weeks and weeks.  The sun shined brightly and he walked out of aftercare carrying his coat instead of wearing it.  We buckled up and put our windows down a little as the temperature inside the car felt a little too hot!  We loved being able to feel the fresh air rushing past as we headed down the road towards home.
Kameron chattered on and on about how well he did on his health test!

SUDDENLY!

S-P-L-A-S-H!! through our windows and soaked us as if we were on the log ride at Cedar Point Amusement Park. 


 We both screamed in shock as the water hit our faces (we were both on the left side of the car).  And then we started laughing hysterically over what had happened and wiped the water off of our faces.  Kam giggled and shared- "Mom, I didn't know Water Works was going to be open today!" 

"Neither did I Kam, neither did I!" I laughed...knowing exactly what my slice would be!

Moral of the story:  When driving near large flowing puddles in the Spring, anticipate the melting run-off to cause larger splashes of water than normal even if on the other side of the road and remember to put your windows up!

  1. Too funny Amy! I thought maybe your sunroof was open and a tree had shed some water...it happened to me once.

  2. I thought of this exact danger yesterday as I drove with my window down. The snow banks are still pretty high, but 55 degree weather will do it. Splash. Funny and oh so surprising.
