Because Earl was an absolute dud. We got no winds over 40, no extended periods of heavy rain, nothing. It weakened significantly - it was only a tropical storm when passing us - and it veered out to sea, following the Gulf Stream.
In fact, we got only two portions of heavy rain. And I drove through both of them. One on the way home from (shortened) school, the other at around 820 pm coming home from a friend's house. Not being able to see the road beyond the next dip was a little hairy, but the driving was fine.
