Wandering the World: Bump! There goes the tail lights...
If you are on the road at sunset and your wife asks you to chase an awesome storm and you end up in a small town where you hit a giant, unexpected bump in the road, it is best to stop and check your hook ups.
If instead you decide to keep driving, wondering why you no longer have tail lights, it is completely possible you will end up on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere having completely torn your $300 electrical connection to shreds as it disconnected and was dragged along as you drove.
Thankfully, I was able to make a quick dinner on the side of the road while the kids played and Tom rewired. It may or may not have been nutella and bread. There is no evidence to prove it though. Crisis temporarily averted.
