I pressed the pedal at the command and pushed my body against the steering wheel, knowing full well that bit of momentum wouldn’t really help, but I did it anyway.
I could feel the bump of the bodies pushing at the back and willed the car forward.

And then, there it was. The most glorious looking plow truck coming our way!
A rope and not ten minutes later we were back on the road.
At last we were free.
