Great tip for getting out in Snow

IMG_6750

There I was, a damsel in distress.  I’d been called and asked to follow a propane truck into a property.  The top of the driveway was pretty slick with snow/icy area that was also pretty steep.   The driver really knew what he was doing to slide that truck down but also knew he wasn’t coming out again unless that the situation was different.

I’d ran home for a couple shovels and was working with one, waiting for the propane guy to finish filling an empty tank.

Then Wes Bergman showed up.  He pulled over, got a shovel out of the back of his truck (everyone one knows you should always keep a shovel in the back of your vehicle when white stuff is present), and went to work.  Ice was broken up, some slushy snow shoveled aside and (ta da!!!) he throw dirt in the tracks!  What a great idea.  The propane guy drove right out and we all got home to dinner much earlier than the driver and I ever thought we would.

Thanks Wes!
