Default Power steering blow out

Today wasnt a good day, Last day of school for the kids, smelled something funny while driving but couldnt put my finger on it??? Went to pick up the kids when they got out, started smelling funny again, then all hell broke loose, smoke rolling from under the hood, step-son screaming we need to bail before the truck blows I had to laugh !!!
All the sudden lost steering, could not turn for the life of me. Got it back to the house popped the hood, turns out the clamp on the low pressure line rubbed a hole in the high pressure line. New line $13.00 and about 15 minutes to replace it and I am good as new.... But wait the bad news isnt over yet, My sons first birthday party is tomorrow, Then we get a call that my wifes grandfather that she is very close to has passed away, so we are getting ready to head out of town for a funeral.... What fun today has been.

Healthcare people tend to be supersticious, and we think bad stuff happens in 3's, so keep an eye on your six. We also appreciate people who don't freak over the first sign of trouble, so great job on the PS line. Sorry to hear of your loss. Glad the car problem was minor since you've got a lot to deal with.
