    About an hour an a half ago I crashed my car. I was driving northbound on I93 between exit 10 and 11 when I hit a patch of black ice switching lanes, spun out, hit the concrete median, and came to a halt in the middle of the highway. Of course it being Boston the first car that came up behind me didn't stop to see if I was alright they instead layed on the horn while I gathered myself ... no worries, I wasn't hurt. Amazingly my car started back up and I was able to call the state police and drive to a safe place to pull over. My car seems fine for now and I was able to turn around and get back home without a problem. I didn't go to work though, who knows what is going to wrong with the vehicle tomorrow plus I'd be leave in the middle of a nor'easter.

    Anyway, there were no fewer than 4 other accidents on the same stretch of road within an hour of mine so be careful out there if you are in New England. This storm is going to be a bad one.

    Thanks man, there was a bigger accident southbound on the way home. I don't think those people were as lucky as I.

    people forget that 4 wheel drive isn't 4 wheel stop. hopefully, no one was hurt badly.
