Elly is ANGRY at Michael because he is CRUEL and HEARTLESS and noticed that she drove the station wagon into a ditch like an idiot because her need to stand on principle overrode her common sense.

(Strip Number 1250, Original Publication Date, 4 February 1988)

Panel 1: As Elly picks the kids up from the bus stop, Mike and Lizzie agree that they've never seen a storm like that in their lives.

Panel 2: As they walk home, Mike tells Elly that she wouldn't believe how bad the roads are. Why, he saw a car in the ditch that looked just like theirs!

Panel 3 She glares at him angrily.

Panel 4: Having realized that it IS their car, Mike meekly says "oh" as Rage-Faced Elly is angry at him for reminding her that she's a some-weather driver.

Summary: Elly doesn't like it when her children realize that she's fallible, does she? She needs to be seen as being always right so the revelation that she can be stupid too is not one she welcomes.
