On the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, a car drove into my house. The driver swerved to avoid a car that stop short in front of it. The car went up my driveway, into the grass and crashed into the side of my house and knocked the side entry door back 9 inches. It also hit my power entry. The items on the laundry room counter just missed my 15 year old dog, sleeping on the floor. My door is covered by plywood as it will not close. The damage goes all the way to the second floor window.
Things to be tankful for:
- No one was hurt.
- Airbags did not deploy
- Missed the natural gas line by 2 feet.
- No Fire! Electric + Car + Gas - could have been big explosion.
- Dog was unhurt.
- Quick response of Police, Fire, Electric Company and Building Company.
- Everyone has insurance.
- Electric, phone, DSL, cable still works.
