Default Never do this. (Blizzard 2013)

So, I went for a spin in the blizzard for about an hour, had rear windows rolled down about halfway..
The next morning I went out and saw this:



I guess in my haste to get back inside through the snow, I forgot to roll up my windows.
31'' of snow and lots of wind + windows rolled down= Fail!

I waited until dark, and used a shop vac, easy as pie.

Go ahead and make fun of me of you want, it was a stupid mistake.

Seriously though, I always wondered what would happen if I left a window open during a blizzard.

I've sort of done that before. I had a car i was selling, and after i cleaned it out one night i forgot to close the door. snow storm over night and pass seat was covered in snow. It wouldn't have been so bad but i didn't realize til morning, i had to go to work and some guy was going to be at my house pretty much when i got home, so i barely had time to clean it.

fortunately the sun came out that day and mostly dried out the interior.

so yeah, everyone does stupid **** now and then. you'll laugh about it someday, idiot

ahhhhh that's awful. I recently got my gc8 and left the little hood vent open and was all worried because it had poured rain during the night but there wasn't a drop inside.
