Snow job for angels

  • Print

I had to drive from Winnipeg Beach to Winnipeg for a doctor’s appointment. It was snowing and I turned off Highway 9 onto a secondary road to get to Highway 8. The turn was a curved yield lane, but because there was so much snow and no tire tracks, I could not see where the road was.

I did not realize that there was a deep median hole filled with hard icy snow that had been previously dumped and now was covered in fresh snow. I sank into the hole filling the entire underside of my car with large blocks of hard snow. With no one in sight and no cellphone, I tried to dig myself out.

Then a Stonewall garbage truck stopped to help and then two Allstar Environmental Services trucks stopped. These three gentlemen had to rock my car to break up the ice and then lie down and dig the snow out from underneath. They finally managed to get me back on the road.

Thank you so much Rick, Chuck and Ken — you are angels. (I hope I got your names right; I tried to memorize them but was very stressed.)

— Maureen Black
