    Just wanted to set story straight, I was passenger in SUV. There were three people involved..2 in SUV and 1 in Volvo. All of us are ok! And we were all driving under the speed limit. Sometimes certain circumstance are out of our control! Thankful that the Lord kept us safe, it could have been a lot worse!

    I was driving in that area yesterday. PEOPLE NEED TO SLOW DOWN WHEN ITS RAINING THAT LONG AND THAT HARD! They drive faster than the normal speed limit when its really bad. They are the ones that hydroplane and lose control before anyone would.

    Isn't that the red light at the end of Weyerhaeuser Road? The one right there by A&E; the gas station? I guess it would be Weyerhaeuser Road and HWY 17.
