A neighbourly good deed on a cold day

  • Print

The car in front of us caught the windrow and spun onto the boulevard as we traveled west on Roblin Boulevard.

We managed to stop, checked that the driver was OK and then doubled back to see if we could offer some assistance. After all, it was -30 C and likely a very long wait for a tow truck.

By the time we got turned around, a young man in a 4x4 pickup had stopped. He suggested we block the inside lane, and he would attempt to pull the car off the boulevard. A couple of minutes later he did just that, and in short order we were all on our way.

Good to see a neighbourly good deed on such a cold day.
