If you remember this pic from yesterday's blog, our Kia was snowed in.
I managed to get Bessie the Tractor running, and I made one pass down the driveway with the back blade. Even with iron wheel weights and chains on the back tires, Bessie couldn't make it back up the driveway. Yesterday, Pam decided to try to drive the Kia out. The Kia is all wheel drive and really good in snow. This is where it was.
And this is how far Pam got. I got a shovel out and dug all around it and got it unstuck...
while the dogs romped in the snow...
and this is how far I got.
I had a visit from an AAA tow truck guy, but said there was no way he could drive down our driveway, and it's in too far to use the winch on his truck. He had his partner call me last night, and they're going to get some different equipment and maybe try again today.
Pam called a friend with a plow, and he's going to come by and take a look. Maybe he can plow it for us. If AAA can't get it out, I'll hook up Bessie to the Kia with a chain and tow it out of there. We'll shovel the driveway if we have to.
And lastly, this is interesting. I went outside last night to take a few night photos. The moon was almost full and illuminated the snow laden trees nicely... and I got this shot. Look closely. Do you see it? About five o'clock, just to the right of the pine tree?
No? Here, I'll enlarge the photo for you.
After close examination, the object is squarish, with a red light at the pointy end. It is obviously Santa's sled with Rudolph leading the way, no doubt out on a dry run, or a reconnaissance mission.
