[Last week] during the unusual hailstorm, I was taking two kids to school when I slid off of Newtown Road into a ditch. Two guys in a brown and tan GM 1970s or 1980s pickup pulled over. The driver had small tinted glasses with a raspy voice; his passenger was younger, and I didn’t get their names. The driver had a rope and gave it a try. After a few tries, they pulled me out. Bottom line is, I didn’t get a chance to properly thank them. Hopefully they will read this or someone will recognize their description and pass on the thanks to them.
