Removing Road Hazards On A Rainy Day
--by Daisies, posted Jan 28, 2008
Nearly everyday, I drive on this road.
Today, however, it was storming and the wind was blowing and suddenly without warning there were several large branches in the road!
Many cars were just navigating through them (which was hard and dangerous) but one van stopped to move them.
Seeing this, I couldn't just keep driving. So I pulled over, turned around and went back to help. As I was walking back, I saw 3 other cars navigate not only around the branches now but also the man who stopped to help, just narrowly missing him!!! UNREAL! He was doing a kind , civic deed, but people didn't seem to have patience for that too!
Anyhow, both of us together quickly got the trees off the road. Before we went on our way, he made sure to tell me to be careful up ahead since there may be more hazards on the road.
This young man and I got soaked, but it thoroughly warmed my heart to know that there are people out there who will do the right thing even if no one is appreciating them!
It is called a TravelScoot mobility scooter and it folds up like an umbrella and weighs just 35 lbs. She keeps it in a carrying bag in her trunk. She takes it out anywhere.
