Grrrr....

I finished the grocery shopping.. was travelling home on the F3 freeway and suddenly an explosion.. the steering wheel was shaking so bad I could barely hold it. slowed down and pulled over to the side.. look in the mirror and my tire, the rear tire on the right was flat.. I limped the car into the emergancy stop and look at the tire...



I rang Glenn to let him know what happened, then tried to get the nuts off, they were too tight. Called NRMA (Racq/roadside assistance) up to 60mins waiting time. . .

40mins later the guy turned up to help me.. he was done in 5 mins

I then drove to the tire place, had to get a new tire @ over $100. and then eventually got home.

Phew..
At least, nothing major happened. I mean it was bad enough, but it could have been far worse. Accidents happen because of these things.. if it had been a front tire, I could have rolled the car.. I Was going just over 110kms/hr (the speed limit)

Phew. Praise God you weren't injured. Did it just blow? Or you drove over something? Guess you don't know.

How lucky that nothing major happened - it could have been so much worse. Thank goodness you're ok!
