Hey there, time traveller!

My wife and I were traveling on the Perimeter Highway, when suddenly we began to skid.
We spun right around and crashed into a snow bank, rear end first. We were badly stuck.
Within a couple of minutes, a lovely Post Lady stopped to help and then two young men pulled over in their trucks and shovelled snow. But no luck. It was too big a job.
Just as I was ready to quit and call for a tow truck a miracle happened. The driver of a grader plowing snow on a nearby gravel road had seen our predicament and came to our rescue. The two young men hooked on a tow line and the grader pulled out the car.
Imagine getting into this situation and having four caring people stop to help within a few minutes. That’s a wonderful example of the caring hearts of the people of this city.
We never got the names of any of our rescuers, but we thank you and may God bless you.
