Okay so some of you guys have been on me for not writing lately.  For that you get two post in one day.

As I was headed back to work after my lunch break I got to experience the wonderful drivers in Nashville. I was in the far left lane getting ready to change to the middle lane on I-65 with my blinker on when the truck on the far right side decided to just start moving into the middle lane without his blinks on.  As I didn’t want to hit him I swerved back into the left lane. Though the swerve ended up being a wobble, wobble, hit the median wall, do a 360, and land on the right hand shoulder without hitting any of the on coming traffic and no scratches on me (the car on the other hand not so lucky). 

This just really didn’t help the day I was having.  I set in the car waiting for my cousin to pick me up when realized that I was luck that it was just my car.  Looking back at the scuff marks I left on the median wall and replaying the event in my head I don’t see how I wasn’t jackknift or thrown over wall.  A day just like today was we when I had a friend in high school that was killed in an accident like this.

I set here today thankful that God speared my life and set and wonder what the reason is.   What does God have in store for my life to keep me alive for another moment?

Today’s question is: Have you ever been in a car accident and what happen?

That is right, everyone is talking about the gas these days. And if you live in the Nashville area you know it isn’t just the price of gas but the so called “shortage.” There really wasn’t a shortage in the area but everyone started think they needed to fill up (top off) their gas tanks just in case there was a shortage. This thought caused people to people to become greedy and eventually caused a shortage. Not only did they fill up their car tanks but they would fill up portable tanks as well. By noon last Friday, it was an all out war to find gas in Nashville and surrounding areas.

Exxon down the street from where I work got more gas at 12:30. Once management got word of this they started making their team members leave to go get gas. They didn’t want any out of gas excuses come yesterday morning. It was crazy. Gas was the buzz at work and my twitter was going crazy as well. Everyone was keeping everyone else updated on which stations had gas and which ones where out. Lines at the stations where horrible, thankfully I had 3/4 of a tank so I didn’t have to worry about getting gas.

To let you know how fast gas was going, I call the Exxon down the street from work Saturday morning at 8:30 to see if they had gas for a friend in need. They were already out. That is right, the gas station that received gas at 12:30 Friday afternoon was out of gas Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

You know there is a problem when your pastor rants in a post about the gas.  I have a half of a tank at the moment, so it looks like I will be making a stop tomorrow to fill up just so I don’t have to wait in a long line this weekend when everyone that filled up last weekend begins to run dry.

So I tried  to post the video on here but haven’t figured out how to do that yet.  So check this video out and fill Nashvillains pain.  I laughed throughout the whole thing.

The other day after work I was in this….

Traffic jam

 

 

 

Usually I’m do not hit much traffic going to and from work.  My commute is usually 12 minutes max and I am blessed not to have to fight this nasty stuff everyday. 

When I first moved to Nashville I would get a high when in this mess.  Call me crazy, I know.  I’m from a small town and even went to college in a small town, the closest I ever gotten to this type of traffic before moving was when I would be leaving the parking lot of my high school of 1400 students.  The BIG city with the crazy traffic excited me. 

Though now, by the end of the day I don’t want to face traffic. All I want is to just get home and relax. 

 

How long is your daily commute?  What do you do to past the time?

This is actualle picture of my commute home today.
