This morning, Ricky wakes me up early & says "We got more snow then they expected - get up so you can get an early start"... my response was some sorta grumble.
I get up & get ready & Ricky went ahead & left. I got a phone call from him saying "BE CAREFUL!!!! I've seen three wrecks already & be especially careful at the end of our road - I saw one of the wrecks right there! Its slippery"... yeah, yeah, yeah... let me get ready... I'm sleepy!
I am creeping down our road & its a hard road to drive down in bad conditions. Its very much a country road with hills after hills & some of them are pretty steep. Its DANG slippery! I head to the end of the road where Ricky said he saw the wreck & I'm aware at this point so I look and am going 8 mph! Then what happens next? Yep - I'm sliding... & I'm sliding right off the road!!!
I try to correct it which is the worst thing you can do so it throws me in a bigger spin... finally I just take my hands off the wheel (And no, I didnt break out into Carrie Underwood's song) & just thought, I'm not going that fast, let's see where this goes! And right off the road I went!!!
Luckily there were no other cars around me to bang into & even more luckily, I ended up in a part of the road that is covered with gravel so I had some good traction to help get me out. The worst part of it was having to call Ricky & tell him what happened... right where he said to watch out.. DANG IT! Pride hurts sometimes, doesnt it?
Then I get to work & my computer is pretty much like this...
