Sad, I tell you!

Anyway, with this threads first example, here we go.

Today I was sitting in the house enjoying my day off after a rather warm week. I heard some rumblings going on outside. At first I thought it was the neighbor working on another project but then my windows rattled. It then dawned on me that I had left my sunroof open when I started to hear the rain on the deck outside the window I was sitting at.

It wasn't slid back but I did have it angle opened in the rear. So I went out and closed it. The rain channels doing what they were designed to do properly and not a drop of H2O in the car. There was plenty on me however...

I've done that multiple times in multiple cars (People have even told me my sunroof was "Popped" open when it was raining outside) and never had a worry.

Added a hood deflector. EGR Brand hope it helps to protect the hood during daughters daily commute to University.

Emma and I had a lucrative Uber day today. I got a ride from a hotel downtown all the way to wine country about 25 miles away, an area I don't visit often enough so it was nice to be able to get down there and get paid doing it. I had a few close calls tonight so I figured that was the world's way of telling me to go home. I've got about ten dash cam clips stashed up but want to get another ten before I put up a YouTube compilation.

Took my 3 week old (to me) 2013 Elantra down to Richmond International Raceway to make good on a Christmas gift from the GF. Participated in the NASCAR Experience and drove a cup car around the track for 8 minutes. Hit a few wineries on the way home too!





Regarding the Elantra I have to admit I am very pleased with my purchase. (2013 Desert Bronze 3,752 original miles) It was a bit of a spur of the moment / frustrated at my 16mpg Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited purchase. I love the looks, comfort and fuel economy (62 mile one way commute)!
