To each his own. To me my own.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

With this weeks photo challenge being a fleeting moment on the street, I thought yesterday’s incident should fit fairly well as my subject.

The phone rang Thursday afternoon and I saw it was Keith, so I picked up immediately. “I’m on the side of the road, just blew two tires.” I hurried several miles down the road and found him preparing to change the right rear.

Having only one spare, we had to leave and buy a used tire to mount on the rim of the right rear which was now supported by the spare. Back at the car, he removed the right front and discovered he wouldn’t be reusing that rim. Double-whammie.

A fleeting moment with a very large rock in the road ended up being the culprit of the blowouts. Kinda gives a whole new meaning to the term Rocky Road…

    • Me either Thoughtsy – and this was on a curvy mountainous road with steep ravines. He’s lucky!

  17. Wow, that’s one big rock that can do that amount of damage. Fortunately no one was hurt.

    • Thanks Miro – we are very fortunate in the way it ended. Hopefully this will be the last we’ve heard of the damage from that lone rock!
