Through The WIndow

I have to be most thankful for an SUV missing us by a hair this week. I got a through-the-window photo on my way back home being fairly freaked when it happened.
We were coming back from a day of diners and pies when a white SUV (you can see it left) came barreling down an exit ramp, over a median and crashed into the car in front of us. When I looked into the car there was a 20 something (or possible teenage boy) behind the wheel.
It was nuts.
I can't find the incident online but holllly sh*t how does that happen?


It's nice to see everything blooming but I can't help but think this crazy hot weather isn't doing them much good. Bring on the tomato plants!

It's nice when people bring their dragon art outside

  1. Wow, that wreck does sound crazy. What was that driver thinking? Or maybe wasn't thinking at all. Glad you were spared an accident and I hope the others involved were okay. Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend.

    1. It was so unbelievably close, Michelle, I mean right in front and to the side of us. I can only guess he was under the influence and driving too fast. I wish I could find out because he demolished the car that caught it instead of us.

    1. I kept thinking we did get hit because I swerved then sped ahead, all kind of in shock and thought at least we got hit by pieces of the car that did get hit. It was a cool dragon, if I had a huge garden I would have seen about buying it.

    1. I still don't know how or why we weren't, Sandee. I think with the kids out of school soon it will only get worse.

    1. They are very pretty around town right now, but I'm sure they'll be gone all too soon.

    1. I don't know what happened to the driver or passengers or anything about the car that got hit, it was also an SUV so that's something.

  6. Dang, that's just way too scary! Our Mom had a similar experience last year but she got hit. I'm sure glad it missed you. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. Glad you were missed by the SUV, Jeanna. If that kid was simply stupid, I hope he learned not to do it again.

    Now that it's hot your way, it's cold here like it's autumn. If this keeps up, someone is bound to say it's because of the volcano spewing in Hawaii.

    Love that dinosaur. I wouldn't mind putting one in our yard. Or, a mammoth. Yeah, that's better!

    1. I really wish I could follow the whole thing and short of calling up the State Patrol am at a dead end, information wise. Is it really? That's nuts cuz it's stay in the house if you can hot. I'm getting most of my hair cut off tmw and that's the only reason why I'm going out into the wild. I think a dino or wooly mammoth would serve you well, Susie.

  9. Hi Jeanna, you lucky lady! I do hope that no one seriously hurt... Most of the trees shere have finished blossoming and it's just going to get hotter and hotter for the next couple of months, but I'm still wearing jeans until at least the end of May. My philosophy being if I start wearing summer clothes bow what will I wear in July and August? My parents used to say the same to me when I started wearing jumpers in September (in the UK). I've always felt the cold.... Oh what a lovely pet dragon! You do see some intetersting sights.

    1. We were very lucky and my mother wasn't really aware of what was going on as she was talking about the hairstyle of the biker chick in front of us. I can't imagine if they had gotten hit. The blossoming continues but the spring weather has been scarce. I don't envy you in that weather and could never handle it myself. Hot, humid and threatening to rain here with 93˚ weather on Sunday. 93˚, I mean, really!
      I see people in jeans and coats and can barely handle shorts ands tank tops. Of course I'm wearing longer shorts but still. You are very disciplined and I wish you luck coping with the heat.

  10. We've been on the road a lot over the decades and have had close calls like that more than once. It always leaves me shaken -- thinking maybe we should sit on the porch in rockers like nice old white-haired grandparents are supposed to do. But I've always overcome my fears ... (especially if the trip was for a good reason .... beautiful scenery, pie, icecream, beer or shandyies are just a few reasons that come to mind somehow!)

    1. Oh man, I have never seen another vehicle come careening down an off ramp like that, Sallie. I bet since you're on the road so much you're lucky to be untouched and either keep going or sit still and I can't see you sitting still for long. I can do without the shandies though, lol.
