Wow, that's unbelievable. I hope you're doing okay.

You left your lights on. You might want to turn them off before your batter goes dead. Just sayin..

(glad you're ok, sorry about the camera gear. Personally, I'd rather lose a family pet, than my Nikon. you will give your gear a proper burial, won't you?)

The big question is why are they on? The roads will probably and closed and not going to be able to drive very far.

I'm glad you have a sense of humor about this whole thing. I'd be crying!

I have good insurance and I expect they'll give me blue book value so that will be cool.

Ya it felt like my poor car turned its lights as if it was begging me to save it
