Fall Weather Woes
Fall is one of the best times of the year. With cooler temperatures, lower humidity, and less bugs, what’s not to love about this time of year? There are so many fun things to do like going to a pumpkin patch, taking a hayride, or just being outside and enjoying the weather. Sadly, the later fall months are also known for some weather issues.
October and November are still part of hurricane season. It seems sometimes as though, the tropics fire up during these times. With hurricanes moving onshore, this can cause heavy rainfall. This even happens in the areas not on the coast, as the storm moves up the state. It is very important to turn around and do not drive in water that is standing on the roadways. It only takes 6 inches of water to sweep away humans and animals.
Red, yellow, and orange leaves falling from trees are such a beautiful sight to see. The leaves can also be a hazard to drivers on the road. Leaves can hide important road markings, deep pot holes,, and can also create slick roadways. If you mix freezing temperatures to the mix, then your vehicle will have zero tracking, and it would be similar to driving on an icy road. Always give yourself plenty of room between you and the cards around you just in case anyone has to stop quickly.
