Ouch, the Sequel

Well, my car is still stuck. I managed to get some of the ice chunked out, but the wheels continue to just impotently spin. Too much of the rock hard stuff remains behind each tire and deep under my car for me to reach. Trust me, I tried. And tried. And tried. Aaaaand fell trying to get some of it. I managed to smack my left elbow firmly into some of it as I went down. My elbow - and my shoulder - took the brunt of the fall before I hit my knee.

Mother Nature 1, Merujo 0.

Now, I'm just sore and angry. My whole left arm up to my jaw hurts.


I'm done for the day, thanks. If this shit doesn't thaw before work on Tuesday, I will be ready to scream. (And smack around the hosebeast who owns the Jetta parked in front of me. If those dumbasses would move - even a couple of feet - I could probably get out.)

Where's a Vicodin when you need one?

Ouch indeed! You be careful out there, M. I know how frustrating it is being stuck in the has happened to me on more than one occasion. I recommend unwinding with good food, a glass of wine, and some trashy will probably go better tomorrow.

Wow; my friend just had the exact same problem trying to get his car out of a space downtown. The streets are evil today. Hope you can just take the metro instead!

If you run up to Princeton Plainsboro Hospital in New Jersey, there's a guy there who might could help you out.

But then again, he'd probably just keep it all for himself.

I have never had to deal with that much ice. Craziness. Hope it thaws soon!

Sounds like you could use a pair of yak trax. Tremendously helpful when you have to walk on ice or compact snow. (not as helpful with deep slush though). I think I got mine from an EMS sports store.

I hope you had better luck with your car today. It snowed this morning here, so I had to clear the drive again.
