Where the flattened down looking snow stops, in between the tire tracks, is where our car sat unmovable! Before long a big 4-wheel drive truck came up the hill heading toward us and tried to pass...he started spinning in the snow too at the top of the hill. He backed down the gravel road and got back on the main road. Meanwhile, Kevin tried shoveling around the front tires(because the car is front wheel drive) and putting it in reverse...the tires just spun and wouldn't budge. The frame of the car was sitting on the snow, and the tires were not touching the ground. Then Kevin trudged up to the house to get the pickup and chains to pull the car out...now keep in mind, this is in weather that feels like -29 degrees! BUT THEN, God sent us an angel of help! ...remember the man who had to back up down the hill in his truck?...he showed back up! ...he had left and driven on other roads all the way around us! He backed up to the rear of our car...Kevin hooked his chain on the guy's truck, and we were soon back in our home, safe and sound. :) Praise the Lord for sweet, helpful people....MERRY CHRISTMAS!
(when we walked back into the house, it was 6:20pm...we had been gone for exactly an hour...and didn't get very far! LOL!)
