Letter: Thank you for help with truck in snow storm

My truck was successfully extracted from the ditch

Thank you for help with truck in snow storm

I would like to thank the people that got my truck out of the ditch during the snow storm.

I was stuck with one wheel in the ditch, unable to get out even with four wheel drive, angled across the road at the junction of Shawnigan Lake and Filgate Roads (a virtual blind corner for traffic coming from Duncan, as was I).

First a driver stopped, obtained the phone number and called a tow company for me, then, just as I was arranging a tow, a second driver stopped and volunteered to pull me out of the ditch. While doing so a third driver stopped and helped, particularly with controlling the traffic. My truck was successfully extracted from the ditch and my helpers went on their way, only to stop a very short distance down the road to help yet another car in trouble.

It is wonderful to see that Good Samaritans still exist here in the Cowichan Valley. Thank you to all of you.
