Showers that escalate into consistent streams of heavy volume precipitation can easily create damage, if the water can’t be captured in a reservoir to properly store it.

In my youth, tuning the carburetors once a week and adjusting the distributor was routine maintenance on my 1964 Mini Cooper S. It would take a few minutes on a Saturday morning, and the car would run great for the entire week.  As I grew older, tuning the 1964 Mini Cooper every week became less of a joy and more of a burden. I did not want to risk myself or my family being stranded by an old car. As a result, in 2015, some 35 years later, we still love driving the 1964 Mini, although if we have to drive a distance, the 2011 Mini is always used.
