Huron County, MI.... We have been under a Blizzard warning all day; it wasn't so much snow as the wind. My girlfriend works in home health care and got called in to work early and then headed over to her regular shift in a town called Caseville (about 25 mins away from where we live, on the water.) Well to make a long story short, from about 4:30 - NOW we have had white out conditions bad enough to have the area declared a state of emergency (no law enforcement, wreckers, no public safety at all were on the roads) Well my girl friend was told to stay at work (after she told her boss....who was sitting on her dead ass at home... she was not going to make it because of the poor weather, but was told to go anyway.) without
pay compensation, and then she wouldn't have to locate someone tomorrow for the following shift... Kind of a kick in the ass.
So I said, no pay, no stay! I drove through the loverly weather (major sarcasm face here!) to go get her; a drive which took 25 mins took a total of 3 hrs. Never the less my trusty Big Horn came through, along with the other 5 that were on the road and managed to not go in the ditch.
I would have to say I am pretty proud of my truck, she got me to my girl, went in the ditch and drove out (no ****ing idea how that happened!), kept on the road through more than 20+ white out conditions, 12" snow drifts, and yet managed to stop and rescue 4 stranded grown men on the way to work (could have picked up more I am sure, but we were full as it was). I would say I pretty much did my good Christmas deed for the day or season, guess I am just happy I could help and get my girl home to her bed.
Sorry to make a long story, but just wasn't sure how else I could explain how much my Ram helped me out tonight.. It was the "Rescue" Truck for the 1 storm of winter.
