Hey there, time traveller!

One Monday morning in January, my husband parked in the loop at the front entrance of St. Boniface Hospital, turned on the hazard lights and ran in to pick me up after a minor procedure.
Upon returning to the car five to 10 minutes later, the battery refused to turn over in the minus 42 degree windchill. There were quite a few cars and people in the immediate area, but no one was willing to help, most citing the cold as a reason.
But one man helped. We would like to send a very heartfelt thank you to the gentleman who told us that he did not have booster cables in his car but went home to retrieve them and returned to give us a much needed boost so we could get home.
Thank you sir, you not only boosted our car but also our morale!
