A week ago Saturday, my phone rang at 11:30 at night. Whenever the phone rings at this time of the night, it usually isn't a good thing...and it wasn't. My 20 year old daughter was on the other end crying because she was just involved in a car accident. She was the third accident that happened on JTB. Someone "fell asleep" at the wheel (they gave them a DUI test) and hit another car. An old man stopped when this accident happened and then someone hit his car. She was driving in the left lane and all of a sudden came across a car not pulled off the shoulder of the road completely (it was half in her lane) with the lights off. I don't know which of the above cars it was but it shouldn't have been there. She swevered to avoid hitting it and lost control of her car. It spun around and hit the concrete embankment totalling her car. She was OK and had a nice bruise where her seat belt caught her in the car. A lot of my time recently has been on Craigslist looking for a replacement car. Of course, it had to happen right before we were going out-of-town camping. The good news was it poured rain on us at Wekiwa Springs on Thursday but had relatively nice days on Friday and Saturday. From what I hear, you guys here didn't fare as well! The happy ending is we bought a 2007 Camry LE from a little old lady...really! It only has 40,000 miles on it! The daughter was selling it because the mother now has dimentia and hasn't been able to drive. It was listed on Friday but because of the monsoons no one went to look at it. We stopped on the way home from camping and bought it on the spot! So the rain was in our favor. We will go pick it up in Ormond Beach tomorrow and I can spend some time looking at other things besides Craigslist!
