Default Rain Blues!

Delhiites would be knowing of the rain storm that just came for half an hour...well as usuall i love driving in the rain.. was just going to get the keys and about to leave when suddenly i heard a huge thud and splinters of glass or something..
i rushed out prayin that nothing happened to my vtec baby. Well to my shock and relief..my neighbours car..which stands adjoining to mine a NHC..was like wrecked when a flower pot fell from the 2nd floor of their house bang on the drivers side of the roof!... i rushed down to see if the front of my car didnt have dents or anything on it..but luckily nothing at all happened!! or otherwise they would have been paying for damage..:-P
the car's roof had practically gone in!! anyway lucky me :-)
and just got back from the drive..lovely weather!

Unhappy

well i think i spoke too soon..actually in my house..there are two cars parked inside and one outside..so as to my concern there was no dent on my vtec..but! today in the morning when my dad removed the cover of his merc which is parked inside..he saw a dent bang in the middle of the hood!..with some paint scraped of! and voila right next to the car was lying a piece of the pot!!
well we spoke to the neighbours they were deeply apologising..though it aint much of a dent..but still its a merc and probably will take it to a dent walla and get it fixed up for a low price!
