rain

Hope all of your Focus stayed high and dry. I was driving home on the 183 toll road last night around 9:30 and it was just plain nasty pouring rain, windy, hydroplaned several times.

There is quite a bit of rain out. But not during the afternoon ... I hate that because when it stops ... IT IS SUPER HUMID.

Sounds like i'm the only one that had damage from the storm! I was turning at about 10 MPH going through a pretty large puddle and my VERY LOW rear bumper got under the water. It ripped right off the car. It's in pieces! The bolts holding the bumper on ripped right through the fiberglass :-.(........ So currently I do not have a bumper as my original is back in colorado. If anyone in the area has a dark toredor red rear Zx3 bumper that I can borrow for a few months let me know! LOL

Here is my Car in a youtube vid...
