Somebody got lucky

This could have been really bad. Amazing video footage of someone almost losing it.  I had a close call like this once on a bridge with black ice over a river.  I had studded tires on my vehicle and I was able to ""thread the needle"" out of pure luck and avoid collision.  I was getting ready to apply for social work school on that day, headed to a ski hill, working on my application with my passenger.

A family friend from New Zealand wasn't so fortunate and our families are in mourning.  Granted, not snow since it's warm there, but heavy rain and snotty roads and a working man who drove truck and couldn't choose the conditions to drive when he was working.  So sorry - RIP and you are all in our thoughts and sending comfort your way across the big Pacific.

 “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.” –Marcus Aurelius


 “The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile but that it is indifferent; but if we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death — Stanley Kubrick

We love you Bree Family!
