How do you put a damper on a fun day at the Sheep & Wool Festival? You get rear-ended on the way home! Yup. We had just exited the fairgrounds and were stopped at a light and, well, the driver behind us didn’t stop. Drew saw her coming and was sure she was going to hit us, so he took his foot off the break and steered into the shoulder so when she did drive into the Jeep at least we didn’t then hit the car in front of us. Everyone is totally fine, though, and that is the important thing. The Jeep is at an auto body shop and they’re going to check it out. While there doesn’t appear to be any real damage, the guys from the fire department thought it would be a good idea to have it looked at because of where she rammed into us. So I need to make a few calls this morning and get the ball rolling. Hopefully if there is any damage it can be repaired quickly.

The boys weren’t shaken up at all. Two hours after the accident, I was still shaking and my heart was still pounding, but at the scene they were just sitting there eating their pretzels as the EMTs came over and talked to everyone to make sure we all were fine. And we are. Even this morning no one had any aches or pains.

I have a ton of writing to do and just no motivation to do it. Anyway, Rhinebeck post forthcoming…

  1. I’m so glad that you all are OK. It’s awesome that Drew reacted so quickly. I’m glad that you didn’t hit the car in front of you. I remember the traffic at those fairgrounds being kind of insane! Looking forward to your Rhinebeck post!

  2. Oh, I’m so glad you guys are all OK. {{HUGS}}

  3. I’m glad you’re all safe! I always fear that someone will rear end me in that traffic mess that occurs leaving the fairgrounds, especially since I’ve seen so many people knitting in that stop and go traffic.

  4. Yeah, smashee smashee. No fun. My drive to the ER to pick up my broken husband yesterday was during what was supposed to be my mid-afternoon nap, since I was home dying of bronchitis. A good time was had by all. At least my boss brought me back a bottle of good vodka from his trip to Belarus…

  5. Oh man Carol that just sucks… I hope your car is fine!
