Have to work half a day. (joy joy). Drive into work early. Lot is hard pack snow. Except for the back side, (where I park). Glare ice. Don't see it until I"m on it. Apply brakes. Start to slide. Have time to write a book as I think about how this is gonna hurt. Hit back of wrecker. (how fitting). Krash. Grille/hood/valance. Trash. Merry freakin' xmas........
Oh well. can't get any worse then this, eh?

Yeah, only thing hurt is my pride. Still sucks tho. I hate driving vehicles with obvious OUCHS. My bodyman said he would guesstimate it wednesday, and go from there. Time to break out the beer.........

I'm happy to hear that you did not get hurt!

I never had thought about driving cars with obvious ouchs before.

Does kind of give us that, "look" when we are driving along side someone!

I can relate to you,I also had to work a half a day,I got off work and had a migrian when I got home so I lay down to try and get rid of it while I am sleeping my calls and tells me the 93 Caravan I just put head gaskets,waterpump,timing belt on has anti-freeze pissing out all over. So I go look at it and sure enough it is coming from the front cover,I get it home and tear it apart(Christmas morning) and the new WP is pissing anti-freeze out from around the pully. So now I have to re-fix that thing,I don't know if any of you have ever put a WP on a 93 Caravan with a 3.0 but it not pretty.
Oh well it could be worse,it was still funn watching the kids open their gifts.

I can totally relate.
Sorry to hear of your battery problems. Hopefully it 'cleaned up' ok?
