Last year (2010) just about everything that could break, did. We called it the year of the broken. I replaced the control panel on the dishwasher as well as the fuse a couple of times. I replaced the motor on the clothes dryer. We junked the Toyota Camry because of failed rod bearings. Donovan did major damage to his leg and is the proud owner of a huge scar that allowed entry to a plate and several screws. The upstairs shower started leaking which necessitated a huge hole in the downstairs ceiling in order to fix it. I could go on, but I am trying to block it all from my memory.

Then, this morning, this happens.

Icy roads helped Spencer over the curb and into a tree. Everyone was fine. The air bags didn't even go off. But the wheel was damaged so that it cannot be driven.

I sure hope this doesn't turn into the the decade of the broken.
