A Bumpy Ride

This Thanksgiving my family and I went to sunny California to spend time with our cousins and uncles and aunts. This is amazing because I live in the Midwest which is cold and rainy this time of the year. We left for the airport in our car and realized too late that  that was not a good idea. Traffic was horrible. It was bumper to bumper traffic as far as the eye could see. It was taking us 15 minutes to get onto the freeway itself so my sister decided she wanted to cut across the no-man's land between the entrance ramp and the freeway. we assimilated into the stationary traffic and prayed that we could get to the airport on time. The car started to bump around as we slowly made our way to our destination. A woman in the car next to us tried to get our attention and point at our wheel. My dad opened the door to find that there was a flat tire. We had to pull over and change the tire in the freezing cold. The only solace I found was that we still made our flight.
