At 5:15 AM this past Thursday he broke with our usual routine to call me. Not used to getting calls in the early early hours of the morning, it tooks me what seemed like forever to find my phone. DH says "Sorry to wake you up but I just got in an accident but I'm okay." He goes on to tell me what happened. It boiled down to this...he got into a fight with a tree and the tree won.
We are pretty sure the truck will be totalled. Airbag replacement alone can cost a couple thousand to replace. DH is sad. He loves his truck and doesn't want to see it go. But on the bright back when the fuel prices skyrocketed, the price on used trucks dropped dramatically. So there are some great deals to be made out there.
So our lesson for today is Texas and ice don't mix.
P.S. I'm thinking about making up a t-shirt for DH that says "I fought the tree and the tree won"...hehehe.
