I woke up early this morning, so enjoyed coffee, breakfast, computers before heading out on the road. Again, we were in rain... man, everything we own needs to be cleaned!
We set a plan of about 380 miles today, which is far above what we sort of normally do in a day. Wanted to get to some warmer weather! Ran into a bit of snow on the road... just enough to say we were driving in snow!
Then DISASTER hit! We were cruising on the Interstate 81, and all of a sudden in front of us, was a bucket of metal pieces that fell off someone's truck! Scrap metal all over the Interstate! Yikes! When you have a total of 12 wheels driving on the road, what do you think the chances are of getting a flat? We both rode all over this stuff, and it was flying everywhere... all the cars were trying to avoid it! Well, we won the lottery...sort of to speak. 1 of our 12 tires blew! The lucky winner was the left rear on the Jeep! Judy had people waving her over as they saw the problem. We made it to an off ramp and she got pulled over without losing control! Good news! I made my way back to her after parking the Motorhome up the road a bit, and in about 20 minutes I had changed out our spare, and we were good to go! Now I am glad I checked the air pressure in the spare before we left Ontario! Checklist!
Below is another view of the pond this morning... didn't get any other pictures today... too busy!
Not sure yet what tomorrow will bring... need to get a tire fixed or replaced, that is for sure! Good news is, it was a Jeep tire, and not a Motorhome tire! That would have been a bummer!
OK, too tired to type anymore... time to relax a bit!
OLD IS NEW AGAIN - * GREEN GRASS IN DECEMBERI've been dragging the bottom of the barrel lately trying to drum up enough enthusiasm on these cold gray and damp days to write...
