We had a fantastic week in Texas with my family last week. It was a bit hectic for me since I am now working 55+ hours per week with contracted clients, but I managed to get away from my computer a couple hours a day to have some fun.
But, as those of you who follow me on Instagram know, we were in a horrific car wreck on our drive home…and if it wasn’t for the tension rails on the divided highway we were on in Arkansas, we would not be here. None of us!
To address the rumors that already started in the comments on a previous post…
- I was driving.
- No there was no texting and driving.
- Yes, our car was totaled, I just got the word on Friday.
We began to hydroplane and then a car or truck, we are not sure since they didn’t stop, hit us and sent us spinning 480 feet across the median and would have been into oncoming traffic except for the tension rails.
The wheels came off the car, the windows broke and we landed in the mud about a foot deep. And as soon as we landed, a hurricane warning came over the radio. We all walked away without a bump, a bruise or a scratch.
We were 15 miles from our hotel for the night…and I didn’t have to “come up with a positive spin,” because us all being okay…I have nothing but gratitude.
Needless to say there will be financial fall out from this wreck. Yes, the second one in just over a month…or less than a month. Both weather related. Both with me driving. Yes, I’m already getting the “you shouldn’t drive anymore” teasing.
But in the end…there were no injuries in either wreck. And for that, I am so grateful.
