The Hero Who Helped Me Out of the Snow

--by twinkle, posted Nov 30, 2009

I was driving home this evening and it had just started snowing,  it was dark and the roads were beginning to freeze.

As I turned the corner and started down the hill, the car started slipping.  I had no grip on the road at all.  Black ice was everywhere.

The brakes made no difference and the car was gaining speed.  I decided it would be best to bump up the curb and crash into a hedge.  So that is what I did.  Then, however,  I could not reverse out because the wheels just kept spinning on the snow.

I was just wondering what to do when a man, going past in his car, stopped and came over to see if I was OK.  He was so great.  He pushed my car back on to the road and got me going in the right direction again. 

He was my hero today.

How good that an angel stopped by to help you--absolutely a hero! I'm sure you would have done the same for someone else.
Drive safely! :-)

I live on the top of a small hill, just the thought of not being able to stop when I want, is enough to get me walk rather than drive. I am gald that you are safe, Love and Light. Bluebell
