Beware: "Hot" Drivers

When I got in my car today, the temperature read 118 degrees. Yes, you expect it to be hot and you just want to get where you are going. But the hot weather brought out the worst in the all the drivers on I-10 today. There was honking for no reason; people did not let you in merge lanes and there was more than one obscene gesture flashed in a short distance.
So, the hot weather and the hot-tempered drivers helped me decide to stay in tonight. I was told that over 60% of the drivers in Arizona are armed. In my mind, that statistic, and the hot weather, combine to stay off the road, even if it means missing a potentially fun birthday party.
