VROOM!!

On September 24, I was rear-ended in the pouring rain on my way home from work.  No one was hurt, thank God, but my car had extensive damage.



I finally got it back from the repair shop yesterday, after nearly four weeks.  They did a beautiful job.  From the back, it looks brand new!



The repair cost about $8900, not counting the cost of the rental car. I was lucky that the other driver's insurance paid for the whole thing!
Jem [had] taken one look at the automobiles on the road they’d reached half an hour after their emergence from the stones on Ocracoke and stood transfixed, a huge grin spreading across his face as the cars whizzed past him.

"Vroom,” he’d said contentedly to himself, the trauma of separation and time travel [....] apparently forgotten.

That's very much the way I feel today.  I'm so relieved to be able to drive my own car again.  VROOM!!

Glad no one was hurt!

That is cute. I loved that scene in Echo.
