Big Snowfall In Ozark Missouri Leaves Me In The Ditch!

Yesterday in Ozark Missouri we had a lot of snow!  I haven't heard the official total yet  but I bet we got at least 7 or 8 inches of snow.

I drove to Springfield for the HBA Home Show, went to some appointments, stopped by Keller Williams,  and back home with no slipping or sliding.  Then, right in front of my house I decided to swing over and get the mail before turning up our drive.  The next thing I knew I was in the ditch, on top of the mail box.  My SUV with 4WD was no help! I had two wheels too far off the pavement.

The way my vehicle was stuck there was no way anyone could push me out. I swallowed my pride and called our auto insurance which includes tow service. A few minutes later they had it pulled out and I was back on my way! I am thankful I wasn't out in the middle of nowhere.

 I am truly thankful for my safety and that my vehicle was rescued and with no damage.  I can't say the same thing about the mail box though!

I'm in TN and I almost ended up in the ditch tonight too.  I made it to Chili's for dinner and then to Target.  I have to come up a hill to get to my house.  I slid back down the hill twice - the second time sideways.  My nerves were killing me.  Finally, I went all the way back to the bottom and got some serious speed up and made it in the driveway.  I looked at my mailbox but I was so grateful to get up the hill, I just left the mail there.

Betty, glad to hear you are ok.  I pretty much stayed in this weekend.
