My Snow Accident

ick. so i've had my license for almost 2 years and I've driven in snow quite a bit here in Scappoose and I've had some experience with controlling the car in icy and snowy conditions.... but for some reason today when i started sliding i forgot everything i've learned and slammed on the brakes.... bad idea considering i spun around and ended up backwards in bushes and trees and inches from a further drop off into about 10 feet of water.... scary? ohh yes. but it was a good learning experience. i'm basically never going to drive when it snows... ever again lol. but here's the crazy thing... the car, is perfectly fine. there might be a couple really small scratches (cant exactly tell cus the car was still wet.) but as of right now, the car is just covered in broken branches and mud. I have to say I was pretty dang lucky. -Thank you Taija Belwood. http://www.taija-belwood.com
