Doesn't look like much in this pic but it wasn't done yet...
The dogs & indoor kitties decided it was a good evening just to chill out. Tucker had been curled up in my chair with me when he moved to the couch so he could stretch out.
As you can see he didn't quite make it ALL the way onto the couch lol
Lola took over the empty loveseat
By the time I went to work this morning there was more snow. Not a lot by any means, just enough to make things crappy when you combine the snow with the not too cold temps and high winds.
The highway was icy and slushy... stupid slush got hold of my tires and pulled me into the ditch. (I wasn't even going fast, I was going 70 km/hr and the speed limit is 100)
I managed to stay calm and in control and ALMOST got out of that ditch. Unfortunately I was running out of room to make it back onto the road and that part of the ditch was very steep. The steepness and the icy slush on the grass sucked my poor little Chevy right back into the ditch.
It could have been much worse though. Those ditches are FULL of sloughy water. If I had panicked and not kept my cool I probably would have landed right in it. As it was when my vehicle came to rest the back tires were in the water.
Onstar put me through to roadside assistance, the wait for a tow was 45 min to an hour (which means at least an hour to an hour & a half lol). Some Good Samaritans had stopped to help and offered to drive me in to the city and drop me off at work :)
(over 30 cars drove by before anyone stopped)
Roadside wouldn't tow without someone there so I abandoned my poor vehicle to make arrangements later. When I got to work I tried to 'accidentally' leave some money on the back seat but the GS saw it and literally threw it out the window onto the ground lol. Such nice people and I have no way to thank them!
From work I made arrangements with Roadside to be picked up after work by the tow truck driver and taken to my vehicle. When we got there we boosted it and winched it out.
Not sure if you can tell from this crappy cell pic but its pretty close to the road and those back tires are in water... yikes!
