2.5" of rain through the night, and I will bet that we had another 1" (or close to it) between 7AM and 8:45AM. It is swamp land up here....

For the people who do commute in the rain, what do you do when you get to
work?

I'm blue collar so I have a uniform waiting for me and I keep spare socks and underwear at work. My gear is in a corner of the shop right now with fans on it drying out.

What do you people who have "white collar" type jobs do?

I normally don't have a problem. I put phone etc in backpack under my gear. but I have a dogtag-like bluetooth device and I guess I had too much faith in my rain gear. this jacket zips up so I was wet right along the zipper line...and where do dogtags hang?

its working propery now after drying out, but it gave up the last 5min or so of the ride
