For those not from the midwest, it sometimes snows for days. We were living in 'boo, in a house. On one particularly routine evening it started to snow. A few hours later I decided to shovel my sidewalk and driveway so I wouldn't have as much work to do in the morning. I spent 1 1/2 - 2 hours shovelling. It was still snowing but we'd already gotten 2-3 inches so I figured it wouldn't snow much more.
Not only did it snow 2-3 more inches while I slept, the wonder snow plows had scraped all the snow from the road into a 4-foot high mountain of snow; blocking my driveway. This was nothing new. This scenario played over and over for years and years. What made this different happened after I got up and started shovelling again. I'd been scraping away at the huge mound of snow for about a half-hour and this guy in a pickup fitted with a plow scraped it all to the side in two or three swipes. Then he went and did every other driveway on the block.
Rarely do I witness such selfless generosity from strangers.
