Good Samaritans with shovels in hand
TINA L. SCOTT
Combine 8” of snowfall, not-yet-plowed roads, and a vehicle with less-than-ideal tread on its tires. What do you get? In a word: Stuck.
While this driver almost certainly wasn’t the only one to find himself in this situation last Friday, he was one of the luckier ones. Not only did he have a shovel in the bed of his truck to start digging, but he also got stuck in a friendly neighborhood in Merrill.
Good Samaritans walked over with shovels in hand and starting shoveling to help. Within minutes and after a little more spinning, the driver was out of the rut and on his way. Thanks go out to Ivan and Jenna Krienke of Merrill, and to all of the other Good Samaritans who helped their neighbors very literally dig out from last week’s snowstorm and all the challenges that came along with the snow, in one way or another.
