Mayday Mayday, I’m bailing out
I’ve been getting up slightly earlier than I used to in order to avoid the rush hour traffic that clogs up the Milton Keynes grid system. I’ve not been getting a shower in the morning in order to do this. Not to worry, the leaky roof of my ‘R’ reg Clio is making sure I don’t go without. Ever since we encountered the torrential rain en route to Southampton on Friday, I’ve been getting a soaking at every roundabout. It seems that water has penetrated through the fixing for the roof-top aerial and settled in the housing for the sun roof winder up and down thingy.
Obviously, the water has some trouble evaporating from the ‘sealed’ unit. The only way out is to utilise the extreme g-force of bombing around a roundabout in third. I get wet. Still, there are many roundabout in MK so you’d think it wouldn’t take too long for the reservoir to empty itself. Yeah, you’d think that but it just seems to be a never-ending pool of water. So I’ve taken to wearing my raincoat in the car, despite morning such as this with the sun gloriously streaming in. I’ve no idea what the people in the cars behind must think. It must look rather weird seeing a car that seems to have rain occurring within. Quirks, eh?
