Running on empty

I went to see fireworks last night, and they were ok, but I hated all the traffic afterward. The fairground was FULL of people, and even though I just sat in my car the whole time, I still had to contend with a sea of people exiting the area.
My gas tank was almost on EMPTY, so I feared I might run out of fuel if I had to sit and idle in traffic for very long.
I'm still surprised I made it home ok.
My gas tank is still on "E". I don't have money to fill it. Although I do have a check I can cash (and hopefully another check on the way), so I can go to the bank tomorrow and get some money, then fill my tank!
Couldn't do it today because all banks were closed for the fourth of July.

Patti: It was ok. I'm beginning to think all fireworks look the same. :) Next year I hope I remember how bad the traffic was, and I'll just stay home and eat red and blue jello or something.
