Some hardy and helpful Canadians! Including the guy from Jamaica!
Yes, I did the deed of driving the right front tire into a little ridge on the side of the icy road, and then proceeded to lose control and drive us off the road where we landed, all dramatic-like, in a big snow bank “wall”. Which we were grateful for because without it, we would have tipped over on our side. Yep. I did that.
These guys stopped, hopped out of their GIGANTIC FLAT-BED TRUCK, pulled out the chains they just carry around (gotta get me some!), and used the afore-mentioned chains to pull Wendy’s adorable Rav4, it’s “Barcelona Red” FYI, out of the snow bank. All while wearing sweatshirts and no gloves while Wend and I were ready for, well, -20 degrees, which is what the temp was. Or thereabouts.
