CAR STUCK 2
THAT'S MY BUICK STUCK ON DOG PARK HILL marty slides back down into ditch
* All Is Well Now, Flatbed Tow Truck Freed the Car Next Day
Shoulda left the car halfway up on that first plateau like I did last ice storm, and walked the rest of the way. Maddie had fun off leash running around the woods in the snow as I stuffed twigs and branches under the tires for traction. Brian w. monty & zim comes along. Then Chris of Amy the chow. We leave all the dogs in the park barking. Probably just Maddie barking. Spend an hour or so failing to get the car out as the wheels just keep spinning and digging a deeper ditch. We scavenged chains and such from the dark stone work shed, but even Chris's 4 wheel drive couldn't get enough traction to pull me free. Call triple AAA . Chris says he'll wait with me. AAA says guy will be there soon. Chris and I start driving down to the huge salt pile for the city plows down by the soccer field, and hauling buckets of salt/sand mix up to the stuck car area, salting the road there so the tow truck will have traction. Guy shows up, all he has is this little Jeep Wrangler with rigging on it : a winch and steel cable. Says, I'll never get any traction, your car's too heavy." as he sets his JEEP high up the road from my Buick, above where Chris and I had just salt and sand piled. " But why don't you set up here where there's traction now." " I don't wanna fight with you guys; they can get it out tomorrow>" On & on. " Ahhh... just get out of here you #@!!*&#!." Lock up the car, leave there all dismal as you will now find it. Get Maddie back up into Chris's all wheel and into the back with AMY the chow, Chris drives us home. Mercifully, my wife was asleep. Try again tomorrow.
