I am surprised the drive still worked.
When I have washed my wallet, after cursing I take wverything out and hang it all to dry and put the wallet opened as best I can to dry somewhgere too. I last did that while at moms home and as I had to go to the nursing home later that day, I had to dry it all on the stove top by turning on the oven to generate a bt of heat on the stove. Still took a few hours and then I had oddly wrinkled money, paprwork, insurance info for my car,registration and more. :/

I've only had mine washed twice. The last time I did, I went to buy something and the money was still wet. The lady taking it assumed I'd been sweating a lot. I had to explain, no, it had been through the washer and it was probably the cleanest money she'd handle all day.
Now I did accidentally wash a flash drive once. I assumed it was ruined but I let it sit for a day before I tried it, and I didn't lose a bit of data on it. Still works years later. John
Funny about the wallet! I have stupidly washed my pandt with mine many times and get so mad at myself for that when I do.
I do know that "dry heat". I got sent to Arizona twice, both times in August. The last time I was there I was in Lake Havasu City, which is where they rebuilt the London Bridge over part of the Colorado river, to an island. Almost every day I went swimming off that island and the water was perfect. One day I forgot and went swimming with my wallet in my pocket. They had these picnic tables with a shade over them, so I laid out my wallet and everything in it to dry. In 10 minutes, everything was bone dry. That hot, dry air just sucks up water more effectively than any sponge. I've got a few stories about that trip, mostly heat related. John
THough it can get hot here, I am thankful for the dry heat. When I travel to NJ in the summer the humidity is awful. I am unsure how I managed in it growing up.
I think my favorite season, at least in this part of the country, is Fall, so no matter what it is, that's what I long for. Summers are too hot and stick, at least much of the time, and winters are too cold and damp. But even when it's Fall, I dread what's coming. John
