This morning, before leaving for work, I wrote this via Twitter:
"It snowed about two to three inches last night/this morning. It's gorgeous out."
First off, I'm given to understand that I'm way off on how much it actually snowed. Maybe an inch total at the most. It was still very beautiful; I wish I had a good camera (ooh, Christmas is coming soon. Something to mention to the parents!). But, as it turns out, also dangerous.
I made it almost all the way to work, only two blocks or so to go, when I came up to a stop light, with a truck in front of me. I was only going 10mph or so; I slowly pressed on the brake, and heard a grinding sound. The car was not slowing down at all, so I pumped the brake, as I learned in driver's ed. Still nothing but a sound of metal skipping across metal. And slowly, but surely, I rear ended the truck. Had it been straight bumper against bumper, both vehicles probably would have been fine. But, no, it was bumper against tow joint, so the truck is absolutely fine, but my car has a hole punched through the front license plate and bumper cover. So, that's probably going to set me back 2-300 dollars getting that fixed. Whee!
In more fun news, My Chemical Romance released their new album, Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. Awesome! I recommend getting the deluxe version through iTunes for an extra song, a free music video, and behind the scenes pictures and video.
