This is a picture of a Ford Taurus. Its not mine but that is what it looks like.
Saturday night I was out late. And for a dumb reason. I should have just stayed home. But because I am always concerned for the well being of others I went out.
We live near the railroad. A train went flying by at I'm sure about 125 mph. Then I heard a crash and huge crash. I decided to investigate.
Speaking of trains, one is going by right now. lol
Anyway I went to the next crossing to see if it was stopped there..nope. Then to the next one....nope. Hmmm. So I went back to check the crossing in the other direction near our home. Nope no train there either. How strange.
So I crossed the tracks to go home. I was less than two houses past the tracks when my car decided to act up. It stopped working, power steering and all and I had to strain to get it to the side of the road.
So I was sitting there in the dark after 11pm in the rain with my hazard lights blinking wondering who do I dare disturb at this hour. A few minutes later another train came by. I am very grateful that my car had the sense to cross the tracks before doing this. I might not be here to tell my story...wow!
I called a friend from church. He said stay in the car and someone will be there in 10 mins. So I stayed in the car.
A policeman came by and pushed the car off the road more. Then my friend came. We were trying to figure out what to do when another policeman came by and said we couldn't stay where we were. For our safety. So we asked if he knew the number for a towing company. He said he did and called for us.
The towing guy came and towed us about 3 blocks to our apt. Cost for this long trip....and he gave us a discount....$108.00 and change. Oh my goodness! I have never had a car towed before. And don't every want to have to do it again.
Soooo I got a ride to and from church Sunday. And a ride to take Mel to his dialysis appt this morning. I am now waiting for the car guy to come to look at my car. Fun fun. :)
Anyway...never a dull moment here.
I hope all of you are having more fun than I am. :)
Please let me know how you are doing. I love to hear from you.
