I Need to Get My Car Un-Stuck Today, Any Advice?
I never thought in a million years that I would still be stuck at the house, but here we are.
All last week, all we heard about was how bad this winter storm would be. Still, I don't think many of us expected it to be this bad. Sure, Monday was an absolute blast. The snow was nice and soft, the streets were somewhat manageable but even then, on Monday night, I had never seen our roads like that.
Then, Wednesday hit. Wednesday hit hard. Those low temps combined with the packed-down snow that was already there to go along with the hours and hours of sleet/ice coming down from the sky combined for a hard winter hit, one that our city and area haven't seen before.
We were unprepared, to say the least. I know I was.
Now, I find myself in quite a predicament. For one, I am out of food so whenever the ice thaws I might gain 100 lbs. But more importantly, my car is stuck in its parking space and showing no signs of dislodging itself, even as the ice is thawing slowly but surely. That is a predicament for me because I absolutely have to be somewhere tomorrow at 4:00 PM.
I have tried many things but my car is stuck essentially in park. I can't put hot water on the ice around my car because, like many of you, I am out of water. I don't have many tools around the house like a shovel to manually get that snow and ice out from under my car.
So, I'm hoping to use a little redneck inginuitity. If you have any ideas or suggestions to help get my car mobile again, please comment on K945's Facebook page!
