Freezing Rain Sucks!
Today was our second day in a row of the nasty shit. It make me cranky. And teary.
The parking lot at Tim Horton's this morning was a complete sheet of ice. I sat in the car waiting for Dusterboy and watched one car miss the drive-through completely and end up crashing into a curb. Then watched a guy with a large double double in each hand slide down the parking lot to his car. I actually covered my eyes and swore when I saw someone heading for the parking spot beside my shiny new baby.
By the time we managed to slide on out onto the road I was a basket case. Dusterboy looked at me and asked if I wanted him to drive me to work even though he would then be late. I managed to whimper, "Uh huh" through my tears.
The road to my office is very twisty and turny. We were just crawling along and as we came around one corner we found a van, that had just completed a 360, sitting in our lane. Dusterboy managed to slide around him and get us both to work without so much as a scratch. I love my Dusterboy.
The silly thing is that I was more worried about the new car than anything. I know a dent or scratch in inevitible but I'd like to make it to next summer at least before it happens.
What's the shortest time you've had a new vehicle before it's been damaged?
