Not sure why, but I laughed way harder at this than I should have.

Drove on slightly damp roads this morning, at one point was entering a parking lot where the entrance is a one way road (2 lanes going in, the exit was in a different section of the lot). I was in the left lane and then some idiot exits the lot going the wrong way in my lane, out through the entrance despite the one way signs and striping. Both of us stopped, I honked, the other driver waved and went around me. Did not crash.

Tried the commute with my newly installed Berk track pipe - despite probable loss of hearing, did not crash.

Drove (very slowly) over a couple real speed bumps for the first time since installing my front lip a couple weeks ago. Up until now had only gone over the wide, flat kind you can take at like 18 mph. Did not scrape or crash.

I had to sign in, because people freaking out over rain made me worry... but I made it home! No crash. Closing in on 600 miles on the car, and over 300 of those aren't mine... (3rd time driving it.)

Almost got washed over when a big utility truck went blazing through a super deep puddle. Drenched the entire car and it hit pretty hard. Wouldn't have been surprised to see a dent, but I didn't look because I didn't want to see... Puddles far too deep for me to navigate.

Whee?

Drove to work in a light rain this morning, heard all the little bits of stuff from the ground pinging off the underside of the car on parts of the drive. Did not crash.

LOL Only in California!


Drove through water up to a foot deep. Dis this for several days. There were cars that actually disappeared in the water. Many, many roads closed and crashes.
I did not crash.

So was that lifted BRZ you posted in the other thread actually your car, specially modified for navigating the floodwaters?

It rained about .0000001 inches this morning. It's quite dangerous.

No but that is a great plan for a winter car!


Mine is actually lowered 1.5 inches.

I was on the highway doing about 70, pulled into the hammer lane to pass a Grand Cherokee and a semi. I hit the gas to pass the Jeep and the ****head pulled out in front of me with no directionals or anything and almost caused an accident.

I eventually got passed and spit my gum out at her.

Did not crash though.

That's not a flooded street, this is a flooded street!
