Wednesday 31 March 2010: Built-in CD player and swimming pool
On the way back from Matt's birthday trip to the cinema last night, I drove into floodwater that turned out to be about two feet deep. The car cut out, and the water started bubbling in; luckily for Andy, George and me, a Police car spotted us and gave us a lift home.
Unluckily for the car, it had to stay where it was overnight.
By the time we got back there this morning, it had been towed - and when we tracked it down, the guy at the garage said, "you'd better take anything you want out of it. You'll probably never see it again."
According to him, most cars in this state are usually written off. It's all in the hands of the insurers now.
I felt a ridiculous sense of pride that the hazard lights were still flashing.
