Well, I've been a bad blogger (again) lately. I haven't been posting very often. I was planning on posting some lovely long well thought out post but it will have to wait. I'm having a terrible day. This morning on my way to work I got into a sort of collision. A man in a big pick up truck in driving just ahead of me went into a big skid, I of course in a panick hit the brakes; I know, I know, I've been driving in winter conditions for over 10 years, I should know better than to hit the brakes. I was worried that the big truck would smoosh me and my little car against the tall concrete median, not a good excuse but I'm going to use it. Anyway, I of course went into a skid as well since I hit the brakes (for non-winter drivers the best thing would have been to gear my car down) and off I went flying rid across three lanes of traffic (luckily there weren't any cars nearby) and up onto the huge snow bank. Image something like this:
but on the edge of a major road/highway and in a tiny little compact car. I had to wait for an hour and a half for someone to help me get my car out and it was cold so that wasn't very fun either (-28 C). Of course now my car shakes horribly when I go over 80 km/hr. I really hope it doesn't cost too much to repair. There goes the money I was saving for some new clothes. :(
I hope everyone else is having a better day.
