Wish we were so lucky.

I planned to take our OBW home from work for the weekend as it has a lot more ground clearance but that didn't work schedule-wise.

This afternoon we decided to drive over and check on our house in South Boston. The city does a pretty poor job of plowing as it's a neighborhood street with cars parked on both sides, on a hill.

We took a peek down the street before turning in and it looked OK. But there was just enough snow to start hanging up the car, and as it packed in the car high-centered.

Luckily I carry an Army entrenching tool in the trunk and happened to have another shovel. Eventually I resorted to jacking up the left front tire to get the snow out from underneath.

After 45 minutes or so of shoveling, we got enough snow out from under the car to be able to back up out of the street.
