Snowy helpers

Stratford Gazette

I was recently driving the car and went into a snow bank outside of a hardware store on Ontario Street.

I rocked the car forward and back to try and free the car from the snow bank with no success.

My daughter was with me so I asked her to push the car out. Even if she could have done it, the passenger side was blocked by the bank.

After about 15 minutes, one man came along to help push, then another came along and hooked up chains at the rear of the car and pushed with his vehicle, to no avail. One of the guys asserted all we were doing was polishing the ice.

Then, two more men came along, one had a bigger truck. This turned out satisfactorily. The car was pulled out of the snow bank. Me and my daughter were very impressed with the patience the men possessed.

It was not a five minute job.

We thanked them afterwards for pulling us out of a dicey situation and wanted to write this letter to say: people, in winter and minus 20 degree temperature, still have kindness and patience.
