Well, I was driving to work and everything was going normal….singing to my favorite Maroon 5 songs, getting out my ID-ready to drive on base…until…I saw white smoke coming from under the hood of my car AND I noticed it was running the hottest the gauge could show!! I was pretty close to my destination, but I was getting nervous, scared even, called hubby, we decided I should try and make it there and then deal with a tow truck, etc.
I pulled into the turn lane to turn on base and THEN it dies! Like I'd already pulled halfway out into the intersection waiting for traffic to pass and for my turn to go and whammo, it dies. I tried restarting several times but no luck. Sigh.
So, a nice guy helped push me out of the way and several hours later my car is in the shop, don't yet know what's wrong. It'll work out, things always do.
But the scariest part of all this was being in the middle of the lanes of traffic and stuck there! I was so scared, 6 lanes of traffic whizzing by and no power to get the heck out! I was thinking, how am I going to cross the street…i was at a place with no crosswalk! Thankfully there are nice people in the world and one of them was behind me in line to turn. Instead of being rude and impatient, he showed compassion. I am so appreciative!
