Back From Philcon

We had a little adventure* on the drive home Sunday night when a pothole flattened both tires on one side of the car. We were able to pull off the road without further incident, and eventually** got through to our auto club. When the tow truck arrived (they were fairly quick after the auto club finally got its act together), it stopped off at a nearby Holiday Inn so we could retrieve luggage for the night, and then went on to the operator's shop. It took until yesterday afternoon for the shop to find the right tires and put them on; we finally got home late last night.

*It was after we'd stopped to eat, so it didn't make us late for dinner. It was nasty and uncomfortable, and IMO "makes you spend money you'd rather use for something else" is a valid substitute for "makes you late for dinner".

**Better World Auto Club has apparently merged with Allstate, which may have something to do with the fact that service was much worse than on any previous occasion. We may or may not change to AAA when it comes up for renewal, but I think we're definitely not going to recommend BW any more.
