Reminds me of rural Southeastern Ohio. The same day I got the ambulance stuck, I slid into a ditch on the way home (stayed on the folks' farm for the Winter break). It just wasn't a day for anyone to be driving (it was hour 20 at that point in the day) -- icy low spot on a curve and into the lowlands I went.

After trying to reach someone on the CB (pre-cell days), a snow plow comes by. In full uniform, I tried to get their attention but they went right by! Luckily some high school kids in a lifted Ford Pickup pulled the Civic out 10 minutes later. Thanks ODOT! (not)

(got stuck again on a hill and walked the 5 miles home -- had my folks pull me back with the K2500-- lost a muffler in the process). 2 feet of snow that day. Rare event.
