Hope that everyone had a great Christmas and practices a safe new years!
We got hit last Wednesday with a storm that let down probably 6-9" and then it continued to come down over the weekend, we like to get out in the pick up trucks and go venturing out through the state forest and the mountain ridges to have a little fun. On our trip out Saturday we seen a vehicle with its 4-ways on, on a path off the main road (this path leads to a gate that is usually locked). I approached the car from the rear a lady hoped out of the car and I herd dogs just going nuts, here she thought her AWD KIA would trek through the 8-10" of heavy wet snow on this path that the only tracks there were from our ventures on Wednesday. The tow hooks they put on these cars will not accept a general chain hook so we had to do it the old fashion way... SHOVEL SHOVEL SHOVEL. After I asked about her dogs (3 were pits) she said she would walk out and I could back her car the half mile back out. She was very happy that we stopped.. I am sure we saved her a $400-500 bill and who knows how long she would of been there.
Well stay safe everyone!
PS This first picture shows the gate that would of been at the end of the path she was on, notice the tracks and how deep the snow was.. this was on Wednesday BEFORE the additional snow!
