Well here is our first scare of the Winter....The man upstairs was certainly looking out for Peter and decided tonight was not his night for a change in address

Good thing he was wearing his seatbelt. He managed to unclip and step on the passenger door and give some leverage to get the door open - a cedar tree branch was right there to take the weight of the door. He said if it weren't there he would have had a job to get out and get a signal on his phone to call me. He was not 5 minutes from home on a terrible stretch of road that freezes all the time.

He walked away with a little scrape on his leg and his pride shaken up pretty good. So he will be running the little Tracker until the Town Truck is fixed or replaced...

Unhappy Posting photos

Ok this is an old question but I am coming to my silver sisters to help me solve this one.

I have posted pictures to the forum in the past. To do so I scrolled down to the little box where it says "attach files" with a button that says "manage attachments".

In the past that worked. Today when I click on the "manage attachments" button NOTHING happens.

I also tried the "insert image" icon above and tried to put in a link from my blog, but that did not work either.

What am I doing wrong?

Sharon, Brad and I are so glad Peter walked away from that without serious injury. Ice is so treacherous. There's nothing as scary as when a vehicle starts sliding off on it's own. Thank heavens Peter diidn't have a run in with a tree. How's he doing after the shake-up?

oh geez wow - you were so lucky that he was not seriously hurt. The truck even looks a lot better than I thought it might - did not even break the window.

We had our first snow of the season starting yesterday here too, and there were reports of vehicles off the road all over.

H Nancy, sometimes the forums features aren't always working for me, try again later. I know Sharon's pictures weren't vsisble and had the little red x a while ago.

Yeah we got snow on the ground today eh? Nancy and I live a hop, skip and a jump away from each other. Koa's first snow to play in, he can't figure out where the snow ball goes when it hits the snow, hahaha. Brad's got both dogs and the cat in the truck and about to take them to the kennel for our trip to the kids' tomorrow. I think your church dinner for all in Lapeer on Thanksgiving and your serving is just wonderful Nancy. Such a special thing to do.

WOW! Having just been through an accident myself which didn't "look" nearly as bad I know how he must feel - relieved, thankful, scared & sore! Sounds like it's time to start shopping for a new truck...my car had less damage, didn't tip & was totalled - labor rates are sky high these days. Hope all ends well with this...Peter probably needs a good soak in a hot tub and a glass of wine to say the least. Good thing the trailers one of the trailers wasn't attached ~

I hope Peter is ok, I know that feeling, and it is scary. I was driving home last night and almost slid off the road.

Thanks all...

Peter was fine this morning. His leg and wrist are a bit sore. I inisted that he have a nice hot tub last night before he went to bed to avoid stiffness as best as possible. And I stayed up most of the night to make sure all was okay - he said he did not hit his head but had a pretty good shake side to side. No headaches or nausea - good thing.

Not our truck thank heavens - Township Truck so not on our insurance either. Peter uses it for the Winter Season - it is shared between works and recreation.

I would never buy a 2 wheel Drive Dodge Ram 1500 - they are renouned for their ass end to spin out even in rain. They have absolutely no weight over the back tires. Peter had not got the sand bags from the works department yet as he normally does and the snow was a surprise. Last night.

We ended up with about 3 inches and the roads were slick for him this morning too.

That was my thought too on a trailer being hooked up to one of these trucks- absolute nightmare never! not even a little vintage bambi would I risk.

He just called to say he is at work and feeling fine and that the little Tracker drives great compared to the Town Truck - tee hee. But he did not know how to use the 4x4 - gosh it is a 1990 it is ancient but looks brand new - and never seen the likes of a canadian winter - poor thing must be in shock....

Well off to do ha ha ha Laundry - and some shovelling - NOT this year I have decided just to let the stuff melt by it's self and throw the 4x4 on to get out I have not even serviced the snow blower yet - yikes...

Hey all - safe travels for your ThanksGiving - don't eat too too much and remember to save some room for desert and bring the left overs back with ya....

Hello Sharon... so glad to talk to you this am and know that Peter is ok. I had to get off the phone as the handset was not fully charged before I tried out this Magic Jack. Works great so far... only have made 3 calls and had to leave messages at the other 2. ... Well all Ladies and their families enjoy Thanksgiving with our loved ones and friends. Safe travels and may all driving have Angels on their Hubcaps.... Peter did ...
