For you guys living in Southern California..

Be-the-****-careful.

The rain is coming down really hard lately thanks to these wonderful storms and it's really screwing around with the road.

I was driving to a friend's place at around 7:30pm, it was pretty dark and with the rain pounding you could barely make out anything. I was driving on the 170 towards Hollywood and my car lost ALL grip on the road for a second. This happened 3-5 times while heading down. Thanks to the many hours of playing video games, I knew not to slam on the brakes and do anything aggressive but to just guide the car a little.

The guy ahead of me didn't do that, he spun his car into a 360 a couple of times and slammed into the right side of the freeway. Scared the hell out of me, I refuse to drive in this weather on the freeway now.

I need better tires :-/

what the **** happened to Sunny California?

no joke the weather is atrocious. My favorite highway with all the fun turns...well it collapsed somehow?! Not like there was a bridge or anything; the road just collapsed. You can't go anywhere without taking a detour. I got pissed off at there being so many puddles and was in kind of a fun mood so I decided, hey, I wonder if I can hydroplane. Made sure nobody was around/no one could get hurt etc. and went for it. Well...I didn't sink into the puddle too much but the water got up underneath my car and tore my back bumper off This was a while ago though, I already bought another one and installed it.

Anyway, just like you said: be careful. California sucks right now.

The brick wall was nothing compared to the huge pothole on lemon. My bumer is totally messed up. And I have to fix that now. Anyone know where i can get an aftermarket bumber in Southern California where i can pick up and not get charged for shipping?
