Default Overnight Rainfall

Did anybody else have trouble getting to work this morning? What is it about a little drop of rain in this country? As the majority are from the Indian sub-continent and presumably used to monsoon conditions, it cannot simply be the standard of drivers here.

But we don't usually get it here & the roads aren't designed to cope with rain.

It is very depressing...

In uk roads are closed all over the place, the closure of "A" roads simply causes havoc with the motor ways which are congested in any case.
