Someone Upstairs lookin out for us..

Headed out last night to go pickup a part for our jeep...
I drove o about 10 or so minutes from home and pulled up to a stop light..braked as normal after downshifting...after we(Wife myself and our 2 kids)came to a stop.
My brake pedal felt mooshy...I ddint think much of it at first...2nd light came to a stop and it did it again...
So I told the wife,Id better pull over and check this real quick just in case...
Found a place to pull off the road and crawled under and sure enough F$%#$%3 brake line blew....
Brake fluid all over the place...Checked the master and its completely dry...
called CAA and got it towed back home..
Just thankfull I caught it b4 we were @ speed approached a stop light or sign..
Found the spot in the line where it blew this morning,just down from the master cylinder where it elbows...about the size of the first section of you pinky finger sized hole..

good thinking, most would keep driving until something happens,

Nothing to it but to do it.

Glad it worked out. I blew one coming off the trailer at the offroad park. Glad it didn't happen with my son in there on the street.
