Alright its 3am here in NY as I write this....
The last couple of days it has been raining cats and dogs. The rain has caused serious damage to our express ways (ESPECIALLY the Grand Central). A LARGE section of it fell from an overpass ontop of a van. The driver miracilously survived. This happened at my exit too! Tonight was the first time I got back on the expressway since last nights rainfall.
I thought that the damage was only done to that specific part of the express way. But I soon realized that there was more damge than that all over the expressway.
Now to the part about my car:
Since it was 2 am at the time I was driving home, the road was EMPTY. There was no rain. I usually do about 80-90 MPH coming home. (I know its a lil too fast, but I been doing this for years now and I know how to handle myself). I came across a straight strip of highway and the ground started to get a little wavy. So I slowed down to 60-70mph. Then I came across some areas that where damaged by the rain. The rain caused certain areas of the ground to sink down and other parts to rise up. Forming little "HUMPS". I hit one of these "humps" in the ground and went SOARING in the Air! I got about 5 feet in the air and luckily for me, I landed Straight. I wasn't turning at the time and didn't spin in the air at all. But Heres the problem. When I landed.....I landed HARD. I bottomed out. Sparks litterally flew. I was too busy looking straight when I landed, but out the corner of my eye, I could see lights shooting from behind me in my rear view mirror (Most Likely Sparks flying). After landing I continued to hit the humps little brothers and before I could get a chance to safely begin braking, I hit ANOTHER "hump". Again I flew a few feet but not as high as the first one. While I was in the air from the second hump, I flew over the third one. lol
After I got back onto normal ground, I shut off my radio and checked to see if I could here any noises or see anything wrong. Everything seems to be going fine.
Now to my questions:
I couldn't really inspect my car much after parking it around my house. It was too dark. But everything seems to be looking fine. My bumpers are intouched. My wheels SEEM fine. Actually, everything seems fine. There were no vibrations or anything driving back home. Is there anything you guys recomend I should REALLY inspect closely for damage?
Thanks in Advance.
