Sister in law in the snowbank

Postby WingAdmin » Sat Feb 23, 2013 10:28 pm



My brother lives up in Edmonton, and my sister in law (my wife's sister, it's a long story) just moved in with him. Coming from Kentucky, she's having a little difficulty getting used to the wintry roads up in the Great White North. She managed to put his car into a snowbank today after an inelegant spin, leaving it stuck so she couldn't get back onto the road. Coming to the rescue, of course the first thing my brother did was take a picture, then post it on Facebook for all to see. :)

As any red-blooded male would, especially those that like living in the dog house, with lots of cold shoulder and hot tongue :lol:

When I enlarged the photo, I would guess she was not real happy getting her picture taken judging from what I see in the drivers window! I managed to pull my daughter out of snowbanks twice in 12 1/2 hours. It was her first winter behind the wheel.

I'm not that surprised she landed in there looking at that road.Studded tires would be the only thing that would have helped there.Looks like you could skate right up the middle of the road.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Ever since I moved to the NW, I have always bought stud tires for the winter. We do not get a lot of snow, but when we do, it comes quick.

Now, regarding the pic....ya, being a guy, I would probably do the same thing, have to take a pic for posterity sake, and then help. I know I would be getting in trouble too.

Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed. When people generally speak about putting a car in a snowbank...well, it is IN a snowbank, and highsided on hardpack! :lol:
I'm assuming that Honda has junk for a differential if she just couldn't back out?

cheers to the #1 Brother!

No kidding, now I have STUFFED a few cars into snowbanks in my time. They didn't look anything like that!

It's FWD, and the left front wheel was kind of unloaded in the ditch. No limited slip of any kind on a Honda, so the left front wheel just spun and the car went nowhere.

Well if I got that kind of greeting when I showed up to pull my wife out of a snowbank she would be setting there a little longer. HAHA------------------Hal

WingAdmin... You went and did it this time man,,See you didn't think about what she's going to do to you once she finds out you posted that photograph of her in that pose..The famous bird is being thrown and you my friend may be out a Christmas gift this next Christmas :shock: ...She will probably just laugh but I bet Miss Holly tells on you [Blood]...Last time my wife went off the road on a winter day all I could see was the trunk of the car sticking up, she was pointing 80 degree's or so,,Then then, I parked near her car on that side of the road and a big ass box truck was making the curve and sliding right my way going about 40 mph's or so and I was going to be killed for sure but the trooper that was there yelled let off the brake just in time and my life was saved, just missed me...Man I was a dead for sure if he hit me, I got the hell out of there in a hurry, dangerous curve, back road to Leavenworth Kansas... :shock:

Nah, my brother already posted that pic on Facebook, so everyone's seen it - and my wife just laughed when she saw it. :)

My better half and I were driving on a slippery road, I was co-pilot due to having had too many barley pops. So the car started swapping lanes and she yelled at me"what do I do?"and I said"stop"at which point the car did a complete 360 then went trunk first into the ditch. After the snow settled I looked at her and said"it was just a f******suggestion"no sence of humor, I had to jog a mile in cowboy boots on icy roads to get to a phone. That was before cell phone.

Been there, and done that. I had a Mustang way back when, and it was rear wheel drive. It was really great in snow, but really bad on ice. I put that thing nose first, tail first, all the way in, everything but upside down, into the ditch over the eight years I had it. I put it in the ditch in Nova Scotia, in Newfoundland, in Ontario, on Vancouver Island and in Colorado. I ain't a bad driver, although the foregoing looks like I am. I just made that car do whatever it could. I remember coming from the north end of Vancouver Island one December down a logging road with six inch ruts. I didn't even need the steering wheel. Sixty miles of riding the rails, so to speak. We were only allowed to travel those roads late at night when the loggers were in bed. Meet another vehicle and both were kinda screwed. One had to back up to the nearest place with two sets of ruts. Man I hate winter....... :evil:
