AUGUSTA, Ga. -- During Monday afternoon and into the evening, most people in the CSRA saw steady rain while some of them had stormy weather. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries or deaths to report Monday night.

News 12 called area fire departments to see if they had a lot of calls -- both the Georgia side and South Carolina side said it has been unusually quiet. One thing though that is normal during bad weather -- traveling in it can be a challenge.

On Monday there was standing water,traffic trying to pass through safely and of course the windshield wipers working overtime clearing the way for many drivers. While most of us prefer not to be out on the slippery roads, Tori Barber and William Simmons didn't seem to mind at all.
"You know you gotta get around,"said Barber.

William Simmons does mind the rain either.

"It doesn't bother me at all,"said Simmons. "It's not pouring down and I mean if you're safe and you pay attention to the road conditions, you should be okay."

Lorenso Moss is yet another fearless driver.The former truck driver and commercial bus driver says traveling on slick roads is something he's used to doing as well, but there is an exception to every rule. Moss says using common sense in bad weather-has kept him safe over the years.

"I'm used to the bad weather, it doesn't bother me at all,"said Moss. "But you gotta be careful you know because everybody can't drive in the rain and you gotta look out for the other driver as well as yourself."
