|A (funny) thing happened on the way home from work today...|

... I crashed my car.
Actually it was on the way home from Rowan's new place. I was driving carefully, the rain was pouring down hard. And on one particular round about, my back wheels spun out and I started to spin. I over corrected and spun the opposite way in to the rail guard on the side of the road. If the rail guard had given away I would have gone over a steep embankment. I was lucky.
I had always assumed that people who crashed in wet weather had been driving dangerously.. now I know that that's not the case. I was driving carefully, I wasn't speeding. As far as I can tell, I must have put the accelerator on as I was coming out of the turn, but the wet weather meant I had no traction.
So I guess I have to put this down to bad driving weather and lack of experience :/
I guess I'll find out tomorrow if my car is a write off or not. No one was injured in the making of these pictures. I tell you what though, that's an expensive $900 evening (that's the excess for my insurance)
