Turn around, don’t drown. I have heard that expression so many times but never paid much attention to it until I was on my way to work one early spring morning. It was still dark outside and I was blinded by the rain pounding on my windshield. I was driving ever so slowly, following the white line along the road when suddenly, that white line was no longer visible and my car was under water. Terrified, I jerked the wheel sending my car up over a curb and into a bank parking lot where it came to a screeching halt and died. I sat there in shock and then began to cry. I have driven the same road to work day after day, year after year and never thought for a minute water could rise high enough for a car to become completely submerged. I thought “turn around, don’t drown” referred to rising rivers and creeks that rushed over the roadway, not the streets that I traveled daily around town.
