Oops.


I have been having some issues with my car leaking so I had to take it to the dealer this morniing... again. I had my sister meet me there and then she drove me over to my Dad's house so I could take his truck and head to class. I decided to take a somewhat back way to class to avoid some horrible traffic.


All the sudden I began to slip and slide everywhere. Before I knew it I was on the other side of the road facing the opposite direction I was going. My first wreck ever. (well, besides that b*tch who rear-ended me). A lady stopped to make sure everything was okay and she called the police so the road could get salted. After the cop got there and she left - I saw about 20 different cars slip and slide on the black ice... none of them made it as far as I did though! The tow truck even slipped! The police office radioed to have a salt truck come out...

Anyway. I'm glad that I didn't hit someone comming the other way and I'm glad the trees stopped me before I ended up in the creek. I'm VERY glad I didn't total my Dad's car. The bumper tore off and the whole passenger side is a dented and dinged, but other than that it's fine. The right passenger side wheel slid off the rim... We had the car Towed to my dads. We took of the tire and took it to a place down the street... they fixed it for free!So nice.

We did a test drive of the car and I bought my dad lunch at IHOP. So much for going to classes today.
