It’s been quite windy in Austin since yesterday and the portable basketball goal in our driveway blew over last night. I knew the base was leaking, but I hadn’t gotten around to topping it off. While it missed Mrs. Ttyymmnn’s Civic, it nailed the Odyssey right at the base of the driver side A pillar. I’m bummed, because after 15 years this is the only significant body damage, and it was entirely avoidable. Still, I’d rather it hit the Oddy than the Civic.

How long before that chipped paint starts to rust?
