Here in Arizona we get summer rains called The Monsoon that can drop several inches in an hour.  Since the desert isn't equipped to soak it up, there are flash floods and road closures.  Last year, the road out of my neighborhood was flooded and a sheriff's car was stopped at the other side of a flooded area with his lights on.  I craved my ticket, so I got in the compact car and started toward him.  About halfway across, at the deepest point, my car started floating on top of the water.  Luckily, forward momentum carried me across before the sideways current took me away into a big ravine in the desert.  I was a bit amped up but I got my ticket.  Didn't win.

    Now that's what I call determination.  After all that it would have been nice to win something.  Don't do that again, its not worth your life.
