So this morning . . .

Friday, December 17, 2010

I was almost in a head on collision with a tow truck.

I left to catch the bus, and as I'm driving along I'm thinking about how much I like driving a truck, how high up I am to view traffic, how nice the 4 wheel drive is to get going and how nicely the truck stops . . . just as these thoughts are pouring through my mind, I rounded the corner of a side street slick with ice, careened into the opposite lane and found myself face to face with a tow truck.

My mind raced as I thought whether I should try to turn the truck for a side impact to avoid the certain head on collision, when suddenly the wheels caught and I was able to turn out the opposite way. Meanwhile the tow truck driver is sitting at a complete stop hoping, just as I, that I would be able to avoid hitting him.

I've never been more certain that I would be in an accident.

Not an awesome way to the start the day, but I was awake without coffee and praising the Lord that there was no accident!

Oh my land! That would totally freak me out. The other day I whipped my head around to make sure I wasn't missing someone in my blind spot, only to turn back around and BARELY miss the person in front of me while changing lanes. Traffic is WILD!

I'm so so so so glad you're okay!

wow I am so glad you are okay. Ice on the road terrifies me, we were in an accident on a bridge last year when Jack was only 5 weeks old, and I swear I was shaking the rest of the day. I am SO glad you hear you were protected.
