One young man will  never forget the season’s first big snow in this area.

Nor will he forget the way his luck ran on, would you believe, Friday the thirteenth?

Good luck, in a very real way.  Make that ways.

When he went deep into a ditch outside H & D Restaurant last Friday, he wasn’t injured.

When repeated attempts were made to haul him back up to the parking lot, it didn’t happen, but nothing worse happened either.

And when an attempt was made to pull the vehicle forward up to the road, people nearby held their collective breath when a semi came through, just as the truck backed off and backed up, and all was well.

The vehicle stayed stuck, but again, this Friday the 13th, that was the worst of it apparently.

One lucky day in a very real sense for a good many people.

A wrecker was called and rescued the vehicle.
