Dodging a Bullet

This evening, Andy and I went to dinner.  We were on the freeway in the right lane by an exit.  A woman in a blue car was driving in the middle lane and decided she needed to take that exit.  In the process, she cut us off.  It's a good thing the hubs has cat-like reflexes or it could have been much worse.  He slammed on the brakes, she flipped gravel as she veered up on to the exit.  There was no place to pull over and check the damage so we kept going north and she toodled on up the exit.  




As maddening as this is, we were very fortunate this was all that happened.  Not sure if her guardian angel stepped in or ours.  
Have a great weekend and drive carefully!

Those small accidents can be very frustrating, but I agree that when all is said and done, you are glad that it wasn't worse.

Scarry stuff, glad that was the only damage. Now, try and have a great weekend.

Yvonne said...

There are some crazy drivers out there--BE SAFE.

Tracy said...

As we would say up north...Crazy Utah drivers!!!

So scary, so frustrating, glad all is well!!

Take a deep breath and try to relax!!

Nana said...

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am glad you did not have an accident. Who knows who else that crazy driver affected that night.

Julie Harward said...

That is too bad..dang crazy drivers!

Valerie said...

So glad to hear you are ok. Things like that always make me anxious when driving for a few days.

Natalie said...

I'm sooooo glad you two are safe. I hate it when things like that happen.

By the way, I like the yellow in the previous post. It's a nice, cheerful color.

Valerie said...

Scary! So glad you escaped (mostly) unscathed.
And the freeway around here is a nightmare right now, even when you aren't being cut off!

Jenny said...

Your guardian angel teamed up with hers to keep you both safe. Glad your both safe!

Cherie said...

I'm glad you two were not hurt. Close calls like that are scary and the people who cause them rarely realize what they've done.

Close calls like this are so unnerving. I remember when they were doing I-15 in prep for the Olympics and it was basically a "luge" that you drove on. We had a near miss with someone and there was literally no where to go. I can remember Splenda slamming on the brakes and I just was waiting for the impact. Luckily, we dodged one then too, but still these are so unnerving

Sounds like her guardian angel might be putting in overtime---I'm guessing yours was there to help out:)
Glad you're okay!!

Kerin said...

I'm so glad that you are ok!

You certainly were being watched over, that's for sure!

Kazzy said...

Sheesh! I got fumed just reading about this. Glad you are ok..

Garden of Egan said...

Oh my word!
I can't believe how rude.

People need to hang up and drive.
I'm scared of driving in Utah, it's just soooo many cars.

I hope you were OK.
Glad your hubs is a ACE driver too. Could have been bad.

You know what they say about crazy Utah drivers! Probably both of your guardian angels were at work. So glad that all's well that ends well. Mimi

I'm glad your husband is quick on the draw and that no serious damage was done. As for the other driver - she was probably put out that you were in her way!
