In response to crappy weather, I was in a car accident last week - BLACK ICE

Recommended Posts

After seeing http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t41565


I thought I'd share with you my experiences of last Wednesday April 22.... I know I should have vented earlier, but I haven't been able to talk about it.


It was raining and crummy out, but not cold enough to freeze. As I was driving home around 5:30 as I accelerated out of a small Northern Ontario town - in the time it takes to blink.... the roads were covered in hail... yes hail. The road was white and all ice underneath. While headed down hill toward a bridge and river, my Jetta spun out, and after at least two complete spins, I ended up on the right side of the road, backwards, a top of a collection of very sharp black rocks.


My back tires were blown out, and all the underside of the car is damaged. Immeadiately I grabbed my cellphone to call DH. I don't know why... luckily two men pulled over and came to the rescue and called 911.


I thought I was going to have a heartattack. It was truly the scariest moment of my life. I thought I was headed for the river. Worst of all, earlier that day I had went to the provincial offices and had my health card information updated with my new last name. At the same time I signed my organ donor card.


While sitting in the police car waiting for DH to get there... I laughed out loud. When the policeman asked what was so funny I told him that earlier that day, I'd signed my donor card.... BUT I DIDN'T MEAN TODAY!


I guess that was the bright side of things. Along with the fact that I drive a fantastically safe car - I walked away without a scratch....


Now I have to deal with the insurance co..... doh.gif

The donor card thing made the police man laugh out loud too... especially since i was sitting there crying, and then laughing....

I guess it is about finding the bright side!

Holy crap! I would have BAWLED if that was me. First because I was scared, then because I'd realize how much I'd have to pay to fix the car lol And I definitely would have laughed about the organ donor thing too, you're not alone.


I'm glad to hear you're alright though :) Someone was definitely looking out for you that day!

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.    
    • Hello!  We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location? If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!
