This time of year is normally when some street re-sufacing is done here in town — usually, no, always, with tar and chips. In most cases pea gravel.
The Raleigh encountered a spot where the tar application truck had deposited some drips of tar. Not totally sure if this is considered a liquid — it isnt a solid (yet), but it does emit a foul smelling odor, so it might contain some gas? One thing for sure, its liquid enough right now you dont want to roll through it! A sudden encounter required a carefully threaded maneuver through the spots and then a return to take the photo.
So, would this be considered a viscous liquid?
The drops are beginning to congeal and transition to the solid phase of matter — the sooner the better!
Earlier in the day, Dave and I were hailed as we rode by JR’s Salvage:
Very old Elgin*
It has a skip tooth (aka) skip link chain.
JR would like to ‘liquefy’ this asset 🙂
