Barks and Butt-sniffs from the (still frozen) north!
Well, this is the time of the year that the driveway turns to ICE!! As usual, Dad and I are having fun! Yesterday, We decided to take my "highway truck" down the hill to check the mail, instead of the four-wheel-drive truck. Dad put chains on the rear tires, while I gave encouragement out the window.
On the way home, about half way up the (steep) driveway, the tire chains lost their grip, and we began to slide backwards down the driveway. Such fun!!
We only slid about 30 feet before the truck turned sideways. I watched out the window while Dad walked up get my work truck. Twice on the way up, he decided to try to make a snow angel. He must not have known that you can't make snow angels on ICE!
He brought the big truck partway down the driveway, so he could use the winch to pull my Ford Ranger straight. When he brought the winch cable down, he tried again to make a snow angel! He must have forgotten that it doesn't work on ice. After connecting the winch cable, Dad walked out into the snow along the edge of the driveway to return to the big truck. He could have made a snow angel then, but must have decided not to.
After my Ranger was straight again, and facing DOWN the driveway, Dad and I parked it at the bottom, where it will stay until the ice melts.
