» Saturday, November 17, 2007Early Thanksgiving
We avoided something very nasty tonight, so this is a very public "thank God!"
James and I were on our way home in my car after a full day. We were turning left onto Sandtown Road when someone came blasting by us at at least fifty miles an hour (this is a two-lane road, speed limit about 35 mph) through a red light. James jerked the steering wheel to the left and the jerk driving was paying attention, because he avoided and missed us by a hairsbreadth and went shooting up Sandtown toward Austell, running another light in the process. Not sure if he was drunk or what; pretty sharp at the wheel if he was inebriated.
Had we been going straight instead of turning left he would have T-boned the car right where I was sitting.
Early Thanksgiving indeed.
