An update on the whole “car hits house” thing.
It’s been a while since I posted any updates to this blog, 2009 was a busy year both at work and at home.
For those of you who follow me on Twitter (@leonward) you may know of the great-crash of 2009. I’m not talking about Wall St here, I’m talking about when the front of my house met a car that somehow managed to drive off a straight road, across my neighbours garden, bounced off my wife’s car, and ended up partly in my lounge. At the time many people requested pictures and more info (“pics or it didn’t happen” springs to mind) but due to insurance claims and the police being involved I thought it best to keep things off the internet at the time.
As things are now on their way to being sorted out and yes, it has taken a while, I thought it safe to share a few of the pics of the carnage. Looking on the bright(er) side of things, at least we hadn’t completed the decorating / remodelling of the room (hence the awful original curtains, woodwork colour, no carpet etc). I also purchased a new amp and speaker package three days previous, but the shop didn’t have one of the items in stock so I didn’t pick it up. If it had come home with me the sub-woofer and a couple of speakers would have been a right-off. Annoyingly the re-plastering and painting of the walls was only completed two days before the crash.
So enjoy some Shadenfreude.
