Lousy way to spend a weekend...

I had a meeting in Kaysville, and left at 8:30 in the morning. I was going through Sardine Canyon to Brigham City when a semi lost control in front of me. To make a long story short, I was extremely lucky and walked away with only a broken nose. My van was totalled. The other driver of the truck was ok.

Nothing like a wreak to give you perspective. When I saw the trailer bed in front of me, I wasn't thinking of any e-mails I need to send, or books I want to write. I wasn't thinking about my meeting, or the chores that need to get done around the house. I just wanted to get back to my family. I wanted to get back to my boys.

The whole thing could have been so much worse. So many things could have been wrong, and I feel lucky to only be nursing a broken nose this weekend.

I'm glad you are okay! Let me know if you need anything. I think you deserve to spend a while playing guitar hero. I'll send an indulgence. :)

Oh man! That is the worst canyon, I tell ya. I'm so glad all you got was a broken nose, but hey, that's not too much fun. I guess you have new material you can do an adult book, huh? grin. Take care!

Scary! I am so happy that you are alright.

Glad you're still with us... any thoughts on the replacement vehicle? Something that swerves or stops better in snow? :)

Ouch! Glad you are okay (save the nose)!

We got hit on 1-15 about two weeks ago and were also lucky and not hurt--but it was horrible. Nothing like these kind of moments to quickly prioritize your life. Glad you okay, good luck with the car

So glad that you are ok. Your van looks horrible! Things like that really put your life into perspective doesn't it?

PS. I found your blog through Allen's blog. :0)
