Scruggs’s Blog: Thank You to Whoever Pulled Us Out of a Snowdrift
Well, it's officially time to stay inside.
On our way home this afternoon (which took us an hour and a half when it usually takes thirty minutes), we witnessed some pretty scary stuff. The first was this close call:
The second was seen via an out-of-body experience.
OK, that's a little dramatic.
On our way home, Shelby and I finally arrived at the HWY 14/HWY 257 intersection to see a Toyota Yaris stuck in the middle, being pulled out by a good Samaritan in a truck. "I can get through that," I told Shelby from the driver's side, "I've got snow tires."
Turns out, I couldn't. I ended up getting stuck in the same snowbank and spinning my tires so much, that my engine died. Luckily, it restarted, and just as I was about to give up all hope of getting out before cars came through the intersection and plowed into me, I saw three men standing outside my window.
One was wearing a Pike's Auto Care Center uniform, one was a young man (who couldn't have been older than 18), and one was pushing my car from behind. They shoveled, they pushed, and they helped-- and I can't thank them enough.
Thank you to all the good people helping out scared drivers in Colorado today-- today when we all get home (safely, of course) let's raise a glass to them.
***If anyone knows who these men are, please tell us in the comments. We'd like to thank them.
