I cam home from my job at the radio station for lunch at 1pm and parked in the drive way windows down. I go back outside at 1:30 to go back to work and lo and behold the garden hose has sprung a leak. The leak was positioned so perfectly that the water arced through my open driver side window all over the inside of the car for a good thirty minutes or so. It shorted out almost my entire fuse panel, and left about 3 inches of standing water in the floorboard of the front driver and passenger ans well as about an inch in the rear driver floorboard.

Damn !! I would say that's almost funny, but I know it's not, I've been there too.
Leave the window down to keep the interior cool and get bit in the ass by mother nature or some unknown gremlin running around the yard laughing while poking holes in the hose.
Either one or both seem to get you every time.
Shop vac. and sun seem to be helpful about now.
Less you can spy the gremlin hiding out in the bushes still giggling, then SHOOT his ass. :biggrin:

My first question to you: Do you always leave your garden hose bib in the on position?

Funny thing is, had you left the windows up, you wouldve just had a car wash!

Im sorry to hear that, I can only imagine the damage done to the inside.

the garden hose bib was hooked up to the lawn sprinkler when it blew
I think your avater may have something to do with it, he looks awfully pissed.
You fed him lately ? Kidding :biggrin:.
You have an/access to, an air compressor?
Pull all the fuses, blown or not, and blast it with air.
Should get the block back in order (worked for me).
Then just vac. and vac. and vac. etc.
If not the car will smell "dead" from the mold and mildew that creeps in (more damn gremlins).

That is tough luck, man.

A buddy of mine got married a few years back. Everyboody threw rice at them even while they were getting in the car. There were a lot of people at the wedding, and their car was a convertible VW Cabriolet, so the car got pretty filled up with rice.They get to their honeymoon spot, and go inside, leaving the top down.

It rained that night. They forgot all about the car filled with rice and the top down. After that they had roaches in that car no matter what they did to clean it out. Three years later, they would open the door and a Texas-sized roach would come flying out at you.

The day they traded it in, the sales guy opens the door and a couple of roaches come running out. Needless to say, they did not get much trade-in value on that car.

I laughed so hard at that picture! That really is one narrow bridge... I had to dig out a magnifying glass to see it! :D

Sorry to hear about your soaking, though. That's why I always leave the windows open only a crack... our neighbors love playing with their Super-Soakers...
