We almost got stuck yesterday heading out to swim, sliding around the driveway in the Prius. Then when I came home with Kendall, we were almost stuck on a hill in our neighborhood. The Prius kicking in traction control, which doesn’t help when you’re trying to get through snow. Kendall asleep, and me watching the speedometer flip from 9 to 11mph, while we’re going about 3 or 4mph. I thought for a minute I might have to get out and push, but we managed to creep the 50 yards up the hill in about 4 or 5 minutes before we slamoned down the driveway to the house.

Kyle brought Tia home and then got stuck trying to leave again, with Tia helping him to get out.

So I plowed today. I wanted to do it Friday, but it was cold, I hadn’t plugged the tractor in, and it wouldn’t start. I had my fingers crossed today, but I think the engine heater did the trick since it started up and I cleared it out.

Not a lot of snow on the ground, but the Prius and Kyle’s car don’t do well in it. Outside our neighborhood the roads are fine, just not so clear here.
