    So, I'm following my normal routine of arriving home with my two toddler-aged boys by grabbing the Touchpad + diaper bags & such from the car and setting on top of my car while un-strapping the little ones from their car seats. Then I go to collect all my stuff from the top of the car and head into the house.

    That was around 5:00

    So I'm just coasting through my evening being pre-occupied as any parent of toddlers will tell you. So up around 10:30pm, after finally getting them to sleep i'm thinking of jumping on the TP. I look high and low, but can't find it. Finally I decide to check the car, and there it is, on TOP of the car, drenched in rain water from having been sitting out there in a light drizzle for 5 1/2 hours!

    Nearly frantic, I rush to get 'my precious' back inside where its warm and toasty. Fortunately I keep it in an HP case. So there really was barely even a drop of water on the TP itself once I opened it up. Trepidatiously I pressed the power button, knowing that even the slightest micro-second of a delay would indicate a certain compromise of the hardware. But, thank God, there was none. ALL IS WELL!

    Long live TouchPad!

    Not sure if rain or snow would have been worse. Glad to hear it lives

    It almost saw snow...and ice.

    Had I not discovered it until the next morning, it would have wound up frozen to the roof of my car. We had freezing rain last night.
