Kevin and I are both fine, as is the driver of the other car, but we were in a bad accident on the road -- I was driving, and a sudden snowstorm blew up on the highway; I hit a patch of ice (buried under snow, completely invisible) and skidded from the left lane on I-94 (going about 60 at that point, decelerating due to the sudden snowstorm blowing up, from a speed limit of 70) across two lanes of traffic to hit a white van in the far right lane with the right front of my car, which then bounced back across all three lanes of traffic (tapping the van again with the back right of my car on the way), and thankfully the highway happened to be clear at that point and no one else rammed up to hit us on our trip back, spinning around three-quarters of the way to end up pointed almost directly back towards Chicago, in the meridian ditch.
Again, nobody hurt, car all crumpled, but actually, astonishingly drivable as it turned out for the final two hours to Ann Arbor, once a tow truck got us out of the ditch. I love Hondas. Sturdy little car! I have comprehensive insurance because I am paranoid, which is a good thing because the final estimate is at around $6200 for the repairs to my car. $500 deductible is what it'll cost us -- which is damn light, especially with no injuries, considering just how insanely dramatic the whole thing was. Once we hit the ice, I had absolutely no control -- I tried to steer for a gap behind the white van, but the steering wheel bore no relation to what my wheels were doing. Kevin assures me that I didn't do anything wrong -- that if he'd been driving, the same thing would've happened. That's comforting.
I really hate driving in snow. That's the main thing I get out of all this.
