Just a Matter of Time

I just knew that they would get back at me. It was only a matter of time. I ran over a Smurf.
Thursday evening on our way to the Boat House restaurant, I managed to run over one of those little round metal hole covers in the road. The front tire passed just fine but when the back tire went over the cover, it was magically off to the side and in the middle of the road. CLUNK, POW! Flat tire and bent rim. Neither were salvageable.

We spent today chasing down a new wheel and then taking that and the car to Costco. It seems that when we purchased the tires there, they came with a road hazard coverage plan. $36.45 for two new tires.

See if I ever run over a Smurf again!
