Since Halloween is upon us, I wanted to tell you the story of something that happened today. Perhaps you can help me explain it, but I can't. It is certainly spooky - I'm thinking my "new" van is haunted!
The weather in Tucson has been spectacular - that is except for all the clouds and rain! But at least it hasn't been in the 90s for over a week! Today the high was in the low 70s (all temps in F), so was almost cold going to work in short sleeves and shorts, my usual uniform.
Anyway, after work I swung past Sam's Club to get the normal 10 pound bag of candy for trick-or-treaters, and a few other things. It was nice-enough weather that I likely had the driver's side window down. There was a storm in the distance that I didn't pay much attention to, in fact, it was starting to sprinkle as I walked into the store. Not sure if I closed the driver's door window, though...
I was in Sam's for less than 30 minutes, but as I exited, it appeared it rained pretty hard for at least a bit. Everything was pretty wet. I got into the van after loading the goods and immediately noticed that the interior of the driver's door was wet, and the seat was so wet that it got my butt wet through the shorts, yet the window was up! I was thinking that perhaps I'd left the window open and a passing good Samaritan had closed it, but with the power windows and the keys in my pocket, hard to justify that excuse. Driving in downpours before, I've never seen the door or windows leaking, but it certainly seemed the window MUST have been open during the rainstorm, but was closed on my arrival. Weird stuff - what do you think?
