Yesterday AlanB was in a car accident on an icy road. Luckily, he fared much better than his car. He is a little sore, but he is physically OK.

I want Alan to know that his friends at AU are thinking about him. We are pleased that he was able to walk away from a collision in one piece.

And I second that thought!

The roads were bad upstate yesterday just having snow. I can not imagine what it was downstate with ice.

I'm glad you're okay, Alan.
Cars are easy to fix/replace. People, not so much.

On a lighter note, Alan, you should have followed your own advice.


Alan's signature:

Take care and take trains!
Hah!!


Alas, this client is a hour away by driving. By train it requires a subway ride, a Metro North ride, and a bus ride and close to 2-1/2 hours of travel time. But I do wish I could take the train there!!!

Alan, Very sorry to hear about your accident, but glad you are doing o.k. We get a lot of ice situations around here and I have had a couple of spin out black ice events in the past. Along with deer and crazy drivers on their cell phones, it is dangerous driving out there. By all means, take a train...wishing you the best. Bill & Claudia
