Canals are made for boats, not cars...

I know it's been raining too much lately.  Here we are on July 1st and it feels like fall more than summer.  Too much water lately?  Apparently this woman didn't have enough water, as it drove her to drink, according to whec.com. 

A 53-year-old woman faces drunken driving charges after she drove her car into the Erie Canal and climbed out the window as it sank.
    
Police in the Herkimer County village of Ilion tell local media outlets that Mary Ellen Dibrango of Ilion drove down a boat ramp into the canal Saturday evening. After she was helped to safety, she asked where her grandchildren were, prompting a search of the water that ended when authorities located the children safely at home.  The kids are fine, and their granny is in too deep.
