My parents-in-law from India were visiting us in the US.
My mother-in-law was very much impressed by the highway system of the United States. One day we were driving on I-880 and it started raining. Upon return she reported to my wife:
“You should really appreciate the roads out here. It rained so much but they were not at all slippery. And you know what, those over-passes were so wide that it did not rain underneath at all!”
I must have missed the next sentence: “How carefully have they designed those overpasses so that drivers can get a little relief from rain!”
