I would like to thank a gentleman named Doug who helped me get out of a not-so-fun situation.
I was driving down Paul Boulevard, just off St. Mary’s Road, and pulled into a driveway to turn around. Unfortunately, I got stuck in the snow and my husband’s cellphone wasn’t working as he was in a non-service area.
I knocked on the door of a home, but no one answered. I saw that they had a shovel, so I started shovelling away.
After more than an hour of shovelling and trying to get my van out, I finally got hold of my husband to come and help.
Just after my phone call to my husband, I saw someone driving by and I waved him down. Well, to my luck, this gentleman came to my rescue.
He, too, attempted to drive my van out and ended up having to use a pull rope attached to his truck.
I would like to thank Doug not only for helping me get out, but also for stopping and being so kind. I asked what I could give him for helping me and he said nothing, but I didn’t want his kind actions to go unnoticed.
PS: Thank you also to the owners of the home for the use of your shovel, and I’m sorry about the big ruts that were left in your driveway.
