Just got home. We were supposed to relax tonight but it was totally the opposite.
On the way home from Great Yarmouth, there was a heavy fall of sleet, rain and snow. As a strong gust of wind blew against the windscreen of the car, my husband and I heard something snap. We did not know what it was until we noticed the wipers had stopped moving. We couldn't see the road! We were on a long narrow road with no lay-by! We stopped for a few minutes but realised that we were causing too much traffic so husband drove slowly to find a safe place to stop so we could phone the breakdown service. It scared the hell out of me! We couldn't see a thing with all the rain and the big lorries coming from the opposite side of the road splashing and spraying more water and mud on our windscreen!
After a few more minutes - which felt like forever - of facing danger, we finally found a safe corner and pulled over. The breakdown van came in less than half and hour, fixed the windscreen (which needed replacing so the repair was only temporary) and followed us home - to safety.
Whew. Thank God we're okay.
Now I'm going to grab a blanket and wrap myself up, have a cup of hot choco and relax in front of the telly.
How about you? Anything exciting happening? Whatever you are doing, I hope you are all safe this Thanksgiving. Take care!
