so not right

I walked outside today, keys in hand, to get in my car. My car wasn't there. I looked up the street, I looked down the street. Not only is my car not there, there are NO cars on the street. There is a bicycle/rollerblading/running race today on my street and, apparently, they towed all the cars. I walked all around the block looking for it, but didn't find it. So, I came home and called our school secretary. An hour later she called back and said that she had found a number to call. The person she talked to had no information about where the car might be. She said that ususally they take them to a paid carpark or just leave them nearby.

So, now I've got to go cruise the streets of my neighborhood (currenly clogged with those people who run even when nothing is chasing them) in widening circles, I guess, to be effective, looking for my car.

How is it possible for people to be allowed to just take my car and leave it somewhere without notifying me or anyone else?!!??

Edited to add: Found it--over by The Field of Mars.

Hi Kate,

I'm glad you found your car! :-)

I thought you were going to tell about your car being stolen. That happened to me THREE TIMES during the 7 years I lived in Fort Worth, TX! It is the strangest sensation, to walk out where you know you left your car and it is not there.

I'm glad you found your car! The least they could have done was post a note somewhere to let you know where it was!

That is crazy! I would be so irate!
Sorry, I've been MIA for a while. I'm still reading everyone else's blogs and leaving comments but I don't have much to write about on my blog. I'm still praying for all of us.

Just so you know they do this in NYC too when the president visits. It happened to my MIL last week.
