It cost a lot of money to pull my Explorer out of the spot I left it in, but I got it!
The damage was minimal. I couldn’t open the front passenger door, but I pushed the front side panel back a bit and everything was fine. I need to visit a body shop to have the front panel repaired though. Who wants to drive with an otherwise happy car mushed like that?
Things could have been a lot worse, so I’m very thankful that everything went the way it did. It’s humbling to hit those "bumps in the road," but I can’t complain about that.
