Image for January 21, 2011 - Flat Tire

Flat tire.
Driving home from work tonight, I heard and felt that awful thump, thump, thump of a flat. I was heading to the grocery store and was nearly there when I had to pull over. I've changed a few flats in my time, so quickly set out to mount the spare and continue on with my weekend. The first nut came off with no problem, the second, not so co-operative. It was reluctant, then stubborn, then... SNAP! The damn bolt snapped off! Happy Friday. I pushed on trying to finish the job and get the spare put on, but one of the nuts would not go on, so I had to call road assistance. Frustrated, I waited in the cold wondering when I could get my weekend back on-track and then saw an ambulance speed by. I then realized, "I have no real problem.".
