Flash 55-TGIF

Snow fell unannounced. Cars moving slowly down the highway, I sipped my coffee as the back wheels started to wiggle, a dance uninvited. My coffee flew through the air and my car spun into a ditch, a tractor trailer waving good morning as it rushed by. Do I really need to be at this meeting?

For more flash --see the g-man!

Answer: NO! Go home and curl up with a blanket and hot cocoa. That truck driver would have gotten such a slew of bad words from me, LOL. Nice 55.

I'm up right HERE

You have a rear wheel drive car?
And I hope you didn't need a tow truck!

Winter commutes totally suck. Teleconference instead.

So scary. I spun out on ice once at 15mph. Wish you could have hunkered down rather than going out.

wow--thanks for checking in on me folks--the storm pretty much caught everyone by surprise and I was leaving early for an 8 o'clock meeting--coffee in hand, I merged onto the highway with just a little too much gas and hit some black ice--instant Flash 55 post!

susan--it was the truck driver that made me step on the gas;-) ah well, live and learn. Thanks-c

brian--this was literally a dusting but it was coming down fast and there must of been some freezing rain before it all started. gives new meaning to the term -coffee to go--answer-all over me! c

g-man--nope front wheel drive and new--the back end just caught the ice and there I was spinning..all's well --hope you had a great weekend-c

jill--from now on it is "conference me in baby"---I can drink my coffee and where my comfy clothes while I'm working.

realliveman--thanks!

ruth--it sure does get the heart going--I didn't need the coffee anymore--lesson learned. best-c

betsy-you are right! sounds like a plan I can use! best-c

Yikes! I'm glad you're OK. Ice is the world's way of saying No meeting is THAT important.
