    Man, this is the most consistant rain I can remember... has rarely stopped in two days here (only average 6 inches a year)

    We've got 7 inches in the last two days. Which puts us 7 inches ahead of last year at this time...

      I'm sitting at the Volvo dealer in Santa Ana, trying to buy an XC60. They are currently playing the waiting game with me, and I am boooooooooooooooooooooooooored.

      And it rains...

          I've been watching the weather up there closely, since I was supposed to be on track at Buttonwillow today and tomorrow. I'm bummed that I took time off work to go, but at least I didn't drive all the way up there from San Diego and then have to sit and watch it rain all day. They went ahead and had the event anyway, but I can't imagine what the track would be like!

            Volvo purchase went to hell.

            As they tried to locate a vehicle matching my specs, their system crashed (or so they claimed). I'll see if I can finish this over the phone with them.

            >sigh<

              Perhaps the system crashed when it realized you were trying to order the car in pink with lavender velour interior

              The funny thing is my wife goes " What is that car a Morgan ? " and I said "No that's a Caterham but there is a Morgan driving it " -delise

                No Morgan.

                That was how you originally tried to order your Caterham.

                    Ohhhh. I was sooo close on getting that for my car, but I went for a factory installed wunderbaum air freshener ($230) and an oversized pair of dice hanging from the rearview mirror ($820).

                    To this day I regret that I didn't splurge on the truck nuts molded from Colin Chapman's originals.

                          I have done a NASA track day at Infineon in pouring rain. Well, it was interesting, especially sitting with an umbrella waiting for the start and getting funny comments about it.

                          Driving was a learning experience, at least I know now that a Quaiffe LSD can be a disadvantage on a slippery muddy track. I believe once a wheel starts slipping the other wheel tries to also speed up and gets more torque which makes it also break loose. That way I made my merry way off the pavement with mud flying all over the car and into the cockpit. But the LSD helped me big time getting out of the mud again.

                          So, I don't blame you.....

                            Fussing about about the weather is pointless...I just switched cars and took a fun drive in the local mountains:

                              Pfft.

                              The caterham could have taken that puddle easily!

                              Just approach it at 100+ mph and you would be over in no time.
