We have been sick around our place for the last week or so.. Colds all around. Sore throat, fever, everything. I went to bed last night with a sore ear... it gradually got worse until it ruptured at about 3:30 am. The pressure was relieved and I went to sleep until it was time to get up.
I woke up for work to snow, it was really more ice than snow. The roads started out not to bad. I got past the Twin Bridges and they were getting worse, but nothing I hadn't seen before. I hit the first corner and started grumbling about the guy coming toward me that was taking his half out of the middle. I moved over to avoid hitting him, but when I moved back I hit the ice and lost control. I managed to slide into the ditch into the deepest hole. The front end is completely messed up, I was in the four wheel drive for crying out loud and ignored the common sense that told me to put it into four wheel drive. I slowed down for the corner, but I still lost it. I wasn't hurt, but I hit a fence (it was fixed when I drove by on the way home).
I managed to get Pete out of bed and Ethan and Dad and Grandpa and Grandma. Ethan watched the boys, Pete brought me the other car, and grandpa towed the blazer out of the ditch. That saved on towing fees anyway. I hope we can get it fixed soon. I already miss it!
