As for the leaf blower - that's certainly an unorthodox way to dry your car. But who hasn't used a hair dryer to try to dry clothing when no better means are at hand? A leaf blower blows a jet of air, much like a hair dryer. And until this happened, would anybody really expect a leaf blower to start a fire? It sounds stupid after the fact, but I know I personally wouldn't have thought this would be a possible consequence.

My husband uses one to dry his Harley and he's not the only one, it's pretty common. I've always wondered what people with convertibles did when it rained. I think the leaf blower makes sense - there are some pretty powerful ones out there, Kurt's only mistake was leaving it on and unattended.:(

It's not just the memorabilia which can be replaced in many instances. A member of Sonia's family was a famous artist (to people in the art world who know their stuff) and they have a lot of her art in the house, supposedly. That's gone forever, if it was part of the loss.

I show dogs, the hairdryer is part of my show equipment. Just be aware that the dog may be frightened of the dryer at first. What i do to get the dog use to it is to dry my hair and blow the dryer at the dog while i dry my hair. the dog is not wet during the trial period.

We show dogs as well...and have Edemco standing grooming dryers for our dogs. They work great for drying out convertibles as well! Anyone know if Kurt has pets that get groomed? Maybe their groomer can recommend a standing hair dryer for Kurt's convertible Porsche next time it gets left out in the rain! ;)

Then there was the story about 10 years ago about the old lady who used the microwave to dry off her dog. That was very sad :duh:

That's really sad. My father lost his family heirlooms in fire years ago, and it has taken him years to get over it.

I have a (small) convertible.... If you are on the freeway and going the speed limit, the interior stays surprisingly dry. If it's a downpour, you stop and put the top up. However, if the interior gets really soaked, you put it in the garage, top down, remove the floor mats, and let it dry out. If you're in a hurry (and have cloth seats), remove seat/carpet/whatever and bring them into the house to dry. The heat lamp in the bathroom works well, too. :cool:

Kurt shouldn't feel as bad as this guy, who is lucky to be alive.
