ok im only a day or two late, but still thought id post up.
I had a little trip up to north yorkshire and back, and on the way back ive never seen rain like it.
Couldnt see the road, rain was coming sidewards across the motorway restricting me to 50mph, everytime i lorry went past other side the wind took water off the top and straight across both carriageways, and i passed one motorcyclist struggling through, with his hazard warning lights on!
ITs been a while since ive been out driving thinking this is downright dangerous, and there were still people going past at 80mph!!!
