Re: Close call

wow i would have freaked as well. my close call was one year for a hurricane. the garage where i had planned to store my car got ripped to pieces. luckily i had changed my mind at the last minute and parked it elsewhere. it was a scary thought to think of what my car would have looked like if i hadn't changed my mind.

Oh man, I would have died.

My close call was a median slide in the rain at night. Thought we were going to flip or slam into something. Finally car came to a rest and had to get towed out of the mud.

Yeah, that was pretty scary. I wish I still had the photos from when it happened. My car had mud, grass all over the roof and hood. We hit the grass median probably at about 60 and just slid... I couldn't see a thing, I just kept steering and hoped for the best. Luckily, Emma wasn't with us.

Re: Close call

Those are some close calls! Mine was last winter when we had a bad snow storm. My car fish tailed over the concrete divider onto oncoming traffic. As I was coming off (more like coming down from the jump) the divider I missed a car by what I have to say was at least 2 inches. Came to a stop facing the correct way on the other side and an 18 wheeler coming by me without trying to stop. The other cars had to do what they could to swerve around me in all that snow. After I gathered my heart off the floor and changed my pants, I called work and told them to not expect me that day!
