good Samaritan or just cause you can?

so what is the reason or total tally for this winter?

i have pulled out an expedition of a snow covered curb because he missed the turn, an explorer that plowed into a stop sign and a BWM that went into a ditch on an off ramp.

funny thing with the Beemer was a chevy 2500 stoped while i was hooking up and said "can that little thing pull him out?"

i chuckled and said stick around and watch

I got 2 but only 1 was weather related.

We had an unusual for my area, snow storm. On my drive home I came across a ZJ without 4WD and with slick street tires turned sideways on the side of the "mountain" blocking one lane of traffic. So I chock that one up to Good Samaritan. It would have caused more trouble later if left there.

Then about a week ago-same "mountain" I came across an El Camino that had run out of gas around a blind curve. I figured what the heck and hooked the strap to him and pulled him out of the way. That was a combination GS and because I can.

Now that I have a winch I hope next year's numbers will be higher.

That would be a grand total of zero The one day it did "snow" (we got a layer of freezing rain on the beach) I comfoted a lil girl who's brand new wj slide sideways and ran her into a ditch but since it poped the front tires there really wasnt a reason to pull anywhere.
