Yesterday I totalled the T-blaze.

I met a friend halfway betw Tyler and Austin to deliver our puppy (now hers) to her and was on my way home. It had been raining PRETTY much the whole way. I had just been thinking about how crazy people are for PASSING in the middle of a rainstorm!!

...And then I started hydroplaning, spinning, went off the road, hit an embankment, flipped, and landed upside down. Some super great boys&men ran over to get me out of the car and then flipped it back onto its wheels.

-our car is totalled, so RIGHT after we finally had 2 cars again...we're back to one for a little while :(

-God provided a ton of incredibly nice people to help me in the rain, provide me with shelter, help me collect all of my stuff that was all over the place, & who stayed with me until B arrived.
-No one was injured! The only scratch I have is a teeny little thing on my pinky. I barely even have a bruise! Just a sore neck.
-Avery was at home safe with her daddy. I ALMOST took her with me. Thank you, Lord.
-Kylee didn't come along for the ride like she had planned. Again, Thank you, Lord!
-There was no oncoming traffic during the few seconds I was in the opposite lane.

Now I'll be driving a rental car until our insurance company figures out how much our little T-Blaze was worth!

Praise the Lord you are ok!

My sister was killed in a car accident on Oct of 06, and her car looked just like yours. The only difference was that you were in an suv and she was in a tiny car. Honestly girl, stick with the bigger car. It saved your life. (Ok God did, but you know what I mean).

I am so thankful you are okay. My sisters have had their fair share of wrecks, it's just the scariest thing. Thankfully you're perfectly fine, sweet baby Avery was NOT in the car, and cars can be replaced.

Love you so much! God is good.

Oh Roxanne!!! I have chills - those pictures are TERRIBLE and I am just STUNNED you are okay! God is good in so many ways and I am amazed and thankful. I am so happy you are okay and that no one wa hurt (besides your poor car) and that you had no passengers. I can only imagine how scared you were! I too have hydroplaned, but never flipped my car - it was terrifying to have no control. Hope everyhting works out with your insurance. You truly are blessed!!!!
