Driving across Nebraska was a series of slows and gos due to the road construction. Unfortunately, it was also the location of my first car scratches.
After leaving a construction zone at one point, a work truck next to me that was hauling away dirt and rocks and mud hit a rut and a pile of mud with rocks splashed across my windshield and the front of the car. Considering that the day was sunny and clear I was more than a bit surprised by the mud appearing from nowhere, especially when traveling at around 70MPH. Luckily I have nerves of steel.
(Well, in honesty, luckily no one was around me when I swerved from surprise and hit the brake.)
Today I had the car thoroughly cleaned and sure enough, the little Nebraska legacy left scratches in the door and across the hood.
Golden Girl’s no longer a pristine scratch-free virgin. Sigh.
I knew I should have gone back to the location and beat the crap out of the crew.
