The Sound of Metal on Metal...


Is not something you want to hear coming from your tires while driving your car...

It's actually horrifying.

It started sometime after I was running errands early yesterday morning and ran over or through something that sounded a bit like wet gravel or mud...and then some rocks being thrown up under the car...then the sound of metal on metal reared it's ugly head.

I ran Honey to the mechanics early this morning...Of course the noise stopped before I got there. They popped the tire off, scooped out some rocks and drove it around the block, just to be safe. Apparently, there was some sort of evidence that there had been a rock stuck in there somewhere that was causing all the noise.

Go figure.

I was deliriously happy that there was no major expense involved and that my car wasn't going to explode unnecessarily...

I am also looking forward to going to the gym tomorrow, as my work outs this week have been cut off due to recovering from dancing and then the car noises...

(I made the above cloth bags for someone I adore a while back, but haven't blogged...so that they may have bags for each allergy medications and any other things we may need on road trips in each car or back pack so that we'll have everything on hand without having to constantly remember to switch things from here to there or to forget anything we may need...I just thought it may be a good idea if things were more organized and contained)

OOOOooo, rocks suck. Especially if they get lodged between pad and rotor. Good thing you got it squared away. :)

I am so glad that it wasn't anything more serious than rocks! I love those bags you made, they are so cute!
