Had a Small Wreck Today

So, we had a rare winter storm come thru. first ice, about 1/4 inch, then 6-10 inches of snow (depending on local area). Then ice again.

I am on my way home from work this morning, nice and slow. A stupid kid shoveling a stupid driveway steps out in the stupid road right in front of me. I jog left, the car goes left. I go back right, and only the front of the car goes right. The back goes straight.

It was the coolest thing. I was sliding down the street at a perfect 90 degrees right thru a green light. It was strange looking forward and seeing the fronts of the cars go by. Then one of my tires caught traction and I smacked the curb. This is the second time I have curbed this car because of a kid in the road.

Now I have what looks like a bad rash on the front bumper, a skinned up hubcap... and the car wobbles. That is the suck ass part. I will be able to get a better look when all this crap thaws and I will post up some pics.

Well, I took some pics. The first two just show the amount of snow and ice we have here.




The damage does not appear too bad to the front end as far as cosmetics go. I mean, it looks like shit, but not as bad as I thought. You can see the crap all over the front where I nosed in.

I don't know what the wobble is, but I guess we shall see on Monday.
