When it rains just hard enough that you forget how to autocross:

As it turns out, things can get a little overwhelming when standing water appears and you’ve only driven a particular car at 3 entirely dry events previously. I think my brain just decided to peace out near the end after having to fight through so many instances of near-terminal hydroplaning. On the plus side, my husband appears to have graduated from “ohshitohshitohshit” to maniacal laughter when he rides along with me. That, and my first run of the day before the water started to really accumulate was good enough for a DS class win and top 25% overall PAX finish in spite of half the other drivers staying entirely or mostly dry for over half their runs.
