The truck I pulled out was a lowrider type.. S10 Extreme or whatever. He couldn't get out of a turn lane into the street, one car was stuck in the 14" of drift on the side of the road, and one was stuck in the street going up a hill.. I always ask the question, why in the hell would you not have a 4x4 or awd vehicle when you live in a city that gets 30+ inches of snow every year?
We have had ZIP/Nada/nothing, in the snow department this year. Strange year, strange weather... past few days have been 60 degrees.... IN JANUARY/FEBRUARY of all things.
