Good Samaritans live on. Lucky were we heading to town on Junction Creek Road early one recent Sunday morning, following an encounter with two county snowplows coming toward us. We moved over to give more room and ended up at 45 degrees in the snow bank. The concerned snowplow drivers then tried to pull us out, but their huge hook wouldn’t connect. (They said they’d be back.)
We called our neighbor, Lynn Witt, and he brought his tow rope. Meanwhile, we thanked 20 other caring folks who stopped to offer support. A large and heavy truck was needed, and the right angels arrived: Mike Terry and his son Ryan and another gentleman who stopped to assist, though we waved him on. The three of them mixed and matched hooks and chains to get the Terry’s truck to the one road patch clear of ice for traction, and our car came out unscathed.
We are deeply grateful to these four Samaritans who cared so much and saved our day.
