I woke up this morning and looked out my window to see a beautiful winter wonderland! Little did I know that getting out my driveway would be a nightmare. Our driveway slopes up away from our house and unlike my neighbors I didn't think ahead and park on the street the night before the snow fall. My car was covered in snow and it took me a good 20 minutes to scrape all the snow away. Then when I tried to get out of the driveway the wheels spun around but the car went nowhere.... What's a Texas girl to do? I woke up my Iowa born and bred husband. He came out and shoveled the driveway, but the car still didn't go up the slope. I was panicking at that time so I called my attending for the day to let her know that I was running late since by that time I should have already had my operating room set up. Hubby went to the backyard and got a bucket of sand to sprinkle on the driveway. I use to tease him about having random piles of sand, dirt and rocks in our backyard, but his random sand came in handy this morning! The traction from the sand helped the car drive right up the slope and onto the street! I was super late to work, but better late than never!!
