You might remember that I don't have very good luck with cars, from breakdowns to accidents (those are just 2 examples), I've had more than my fair share of car issues. Last Spring Mike and I decided it was time to get rid of my Stratus (we were putting way too much money into it!) and buy a more reliable vehicle. We decided to buy a Saturn Vue, thinking it would last a few years and when our family grows, the Vue would provide ample room.
On Thursday, I got up with Mike and headed to the gym when he left for work. Same thing that happens every day. Driving though our subdivision, I thought about how slick it was and the wind and snow were really blowing hard. It was difficult to see, but I know that it's often worse in our subdivision than on the main roads. I figured I would get onto the main road and if it was too bad, I'd turn around and go home. It's about a 15 minute drive to the gym and I didn't want to drive that far in bad weather.
I pulled out of the subdivision and got about 2 houses down when I saw a SUV swerving down the road. He was heading right for me and I immediately knew that he was going to hit me. I thought maybe I could avoid a head on collision by going off the road and into someone's front yard. Too late though, I heard a sickening crunch and the airbags blew up in my face. The other driver pulled his car off to the side of the road (still driveable--of course!) and I got out to see what happened.
And this is what I saw:
