The last puncture I had (last winter) was a tire that ran over contents of
a trash barrel that fell off someone's trailer going up a hill.  I was in
the downhill lane and had no option other than run over the trash, which
apparently included a beer bottle that tore a big slit in an almost brand
new Nokian RSI.  Without my spare, I'd have been stuck on the side of the
road at 6 a.m. in the middle of the winter.
