We had A Good Storm Last Night

Lots of rain and fairly heavy wind gusts. Around 3:30am I heard a loud thump outside; a quick survey of the inside of the house showed no leaks.

When I left at 4:30, the rain still coming down in buckets, I was greeted by this in the driveway


Oh yay.

Right dab schmack in the center of the rear window on the Passat.

Hurray for duct tape and plastic garbage bags.

    You need to get a damn witch doctor to do some SERIOUS cleansing over that car…

  3. Dan Collins says:

    Ugh. What a drag.

  4. JeffS says:

    That sucks. Can you blame it on the sequester?

  5. Gunslinger says:


    Condolences also…

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    Well, I have to say that we’ve been stupidly lucky, as what you see above exceeds the sum total of the damage we received from both Irene and Sandy, so I’ll gladly take this lump 🙂

  7. Mr. Bingley says:

    Oh, and for what it’s worth let the record show that I sang “And like a good neighbor State Farm is there!” in the driveway at 4:30 am and the damned agent did NOT pop into existence next to me.

    So I am going to file a class action false advertising suit against them.

    If not the sequester, at LEAST El Niño…

    (Re: the witch doctor ~ am I seeing that it also took out the window I took out in June?)

  9. Bill N says:

    It’s Bush’s fault.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    It looks like it, Sis, but that’s just the condensation/rain splattered about happily.

  11. JeffS says:

    And if not on El Niño, then blame it on the Republicans ………

    My sympathy.

  13. Dr Alice says:

    Oh, man. Sorry to see it, but I’m glad nobody got hurt.

  14. Ave says:

    Oh No! Didn’t we just tape up Passat windows a couple of months ago? So glad no one was hurt.

    This is what happens when I miss staff meetings. Glad nobody’s hurt!
