    I've lived in Pensacola when it was like that (about two years ago). I did bike through white out rain mostly because I had some experiments to do. This was neither safe nor sane (it wouldn't have been in a car either)

    Yes I can see where it can be safely ridden to the edge of a deep puddle/running water in the street as shown in the video clip. Of course I can do that with my current bike, even can do that with my car.

    Yeah, but if you did it with your current bike, your feet would get wet.

    Hubs would take a beating. Cleaning hubs is no fun.

    I had similar experiences in Mobile, AL. My first year I refused to drive and ended up riding in water shoes half the summer. The day there was a foot of water out in front of my house, though...that day I called in.
