After what can only be described as a long, icky week, things are going better. Last Tuesday, I was on my way home from class when I was attacked by a renegade tire that had escaped from a semi going the other direction on the interstate. It complete smashed the front end of my Alero, but I was unhurt (thankfully).
It took the auto body shop all of one morning to decide that the car was unfixable. They kindly lent me a charming ’94 Buick for the time being and we set about dealing with the insurance company. After several trips back and forth to Eau Claire, with my ipod adapter working poorly in the old piece of crap, Jeff & I made it knew without a doubt we needed to get a new car asap.
Yesterday, we got it all worked out, and I was able to drive my new (well, new to me) Nissan Altima off the lot and bring it home. It was not been tested by the trip to Eau Claire, it will be later today, but after several trips to Tomah and back, I do know my ipod plays clearly through the stereo.
So, with all the chaos, at least we’ve gotten that settled.
