Day Sixtyeight: Flat Tire
Rainy, grey, chilly, windy, 45 degrees in Chaumont NY. Quite a contrast compared to what we have been getting accustomed to since March. The Sun came out briefly a couple of times, once when I photographed the flat tire.
So I go out to my driveway this morning and see I have a flat tire. That's not a real big problem because I have a couple of spare tires that are like new that came off another Dodge Caravan I was driving before this one. Thankfully I didn't need to get anywhere today so I was able to take my time with it. The other photo shows the piece of metal that was stuck in the tire tread, right on the edge of the sidewall. Remember that water valve that goes to my Maytag dishwasher? There's a photo of it in yesterday's post. Well, I went to an appliance repair store near here to see if they had one of those valves in stock. I think this piece of metal came from their parking lot.
