Ouch!


Well, when we returned from Florida we didn't have the snow tires put back on my car because we thought spring was too close now to do that. This morning on my way to Bible study, I made a left turn and my car slid to the right on the snow covered road, after I turned....right into a neighbor's mailbox. The mailbox is fine , but my car said, "Ouch" as the side mirror was busted. Boo hoo! Come on spring, where are you? It's supposed to be 40 on Saturday, I can't wait!

Uh-oh... You need a new mirror.

Well, I'm glad that is all that happened. It could have been worse. Be very careful out there!

bummer! Will insurance cover it?

Rachel said...

Kristina- We're not going to claim it on our insurance because of the deer accident that I had in August, and the fact that my husband was able to find the right part on line for only $160.00. That was a deal!! At our Honda dealer here, they wanted $100.00 more for the same exact part.

Tracy said...

Wow. It's nice to have a handy hubby. How is he going to put it on though?

Rachel said...

He can do that too Tracy. I don't think there's much he can't do.

Dave said...

Hopefully I don't have to use a hammer.

Shelly said...

UGH! No fun!! But glad it wasn't more serious.

Martha said...

You have to look at the bright side, at least you didn't tear up anybody's front lawn or hit anyone's dog.

And... if Dave's going to use a hammer on the car, I think you might want to take it to the Honda dealer.

I'm glad everything is okay too. I have another friend who rolled her vehicle on the way to Ladie's Bible study. Her husband couldn't fix it. :(

I am glad that you are okay and that no one was hurt. I didn't know that people still put snow tires on their cars.

well, at least you have an excuse for knocking your mirror off, snow, no snow tires. I did the same to my car just backing out of the drive, I side-swiped a tree in sunny weather! :o)

Gudl said...

Well, I guess these things happen... never fun though.

Between the freezing cold and snow banks, I managed to wreck the front plastic bumper of my car. Just froze and kind of shattered. That bums me out.

kristina said...

Rachel said...

Kristina- That IS a bummer!

I don't know why my picture disappeared, but I put it back.
