Ok, editing this now, only a few minutes after posting.

Today was my Speech Science final, which I did end up having, but not without a bit of effort to get there. My car was an igloo, so I had to clear it off and everything. My trip went well, until I got to the end of 146, at which point I noticed I was losing a bit of control of the traction, and I couldn't stay in my lane. Then I just completely lost all control and skidded. Luckily the people behind me stopped in time to allow me a bit of space, so I managed to ease on the brakes and turn myself so I was stopped facing in the direction I needed to be. This is, of course, after sliding around so badly that I was actually bracing for impact with the concrete on BOTH sides of the road. But once I managed to stop, I was all set, and there were no problems from there.

That was pretty much the highlight of my day.

Oh, and I'm finished with the semester. I think it went very well.

EDIT: No, I am not a completely inconsiderate jackass. I just posted this pic of Jeremy Clarkson for the lulz.

I'm glad you're okay and remember being relaxed in the event of a collision is better than being firm and "bracing"...easier said than done, huh?

I was actually surprisingly calm about everything. Afterwards I was like "Why didn't I freak out?"

I am really glad you are alright. Your tweet scared me a bit. I got it as I was climbing out of the shower...
