False Alarm

Yes, you've heard it before. It was cold and the snow was blowing and drifting across the road. I was out plowing my accounts, trying to keep ahead of the storm. The city had a snow emergency, meaning only emergency personnel were to be driving on the road. I only saw a few private plows on the road. The city snow removal equipment was even called back until the wind died down.

I had the lonely feeling I was the only one out there. Then I got the call no one wants. One of my customers' daughter was going to have a baby and the car was stuck in the drive. I was about two miles from their home so I headed over there. I called my other driver and told him also head to that location.

When I got to the home, there was a car stuck in the driveway. I plowed around the car and headed to the house. There were 6 inches of snow in the drive and it was blowing. I knocked on the door and asked, "how is your daughter?" 

The father said, "She's alright. I was just going to the store to take a video back and I got stuck in the drive."

We finished plowing his drive and dug his car out of the drift. I then put his car back in the garage. What a night!

For the record, his daughter did not have her baby for over a month.
