Today Chicagoland got it's first snow. This is typically a happy event but I am a scrooge towards winter. Snow, ice, 10* weather, 20 layers and I'm still cold....not a fan!!!
So I left the house this morning bright and early (630am) for my womens group that meets twice a month and when I opened the front door...SNOW! About 1.5 inches and more was falling. Uhhh. Realizing that cleaning my car off would make me late I hauled some ass to get it done. Also not too thrilled I would be the one testing how the new car did in snow, I pressed on.
I was almost to my group and I turned into the parking lot at 5mph and slid...and slid...right into the curb. Thinking to myself "SHIT the car is brand f*ing new". I parked and stepped out to asses the damage. I see a black tire where my hub cap used to be. I walked in to tell my group what happened and that I needed to go find my hub cap. I called D on my way back to the scene of the incident (aka across the parking lot). There it was, my sad little hub cap, right next to the curb!
Damn you snow!
After group I got a better look and magically the car body doesn't have a scratch but the hub cap didn't fair so well, it's cracked!
So call Mazda, order a new one...$59. WHAT THE HELL. For a plastic hub cap. Oh well it could have been worse.
Well winter you win this round!
