    Note: I took the lady/guy out of the picture i didn't know them nor did i have a right to post there pic online. Some of these pictures are on streets back roads and park.
    This happen when the snow melted quickly with a lot of snow and rain.

    it's a rush just like anything else.....when you hear the harmonic vibs beginning and wonder if the engine if gonna flood or pull you out of the raging water.....you can feel the water hitting the sides...beginning to push the car over....its a damned thrill!

    Cars tend to give drivers a sense of invulnerability.

    Hence, we see things like road rage and people foolishly drivigg through flood areas.
