Car Trouble

When Todd came home tonight he told me he was hearing noises as he was driving but could not figure out what it was. I thought "Great! What a way to end a perfectly horrible day!"

He wanted me to go outside and take his car for a spin around the block to see if I could hear the noise. Instead, what I found was a HUGE piece of ice stuck behind the left and right wheel!

I was lucky I didn't break my toe when I tried to kick the ice off! I don't know if you can tell, but this ice piece was at least two feet by one and weighed so much it could have killed someone!

After kicking off the ice, we drove the car and Viola! No more noise! What ended up to be a bad day turned into a fit of laughter!

4 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. It's so good when you find the simple solutions.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Come back any time.

  2. I think you are a great mechanic Tami!!! I had to laugh because I tried to kick a little ice chunk from my deck and almost broke my foot it was sooo frozen to the deck. I was shocked!!!! It is still stuck on the deck too, the little icy rock!!! xo

  3. I am so glad your day ended on a fit of laughter. I hope you have a good day.

  4. I am glad I'm not the only one this happens to! This happened a few weeks ago and I was so annoyed, until I got home all upset and told my husband. He very calmly went out and knocked off the ice. Good thing he's around to help me keep my sanity!

    Just wanted to thank you for stopping by ABC and 123 and for becoming a follower. We really appreciate it and hope that you'll consider sharing some of the activities you do with your children with all of us!
