Far over the freezing roads cold...

Another of my photos. I’m seriously just considering stopping using Pinterest photos... Not because my photography’s great. Mostly because of like they’re from Pinterest and not my own and... yeah... um... yeah. ;)
So, guess what? =) Believe it or not, I had a little adventure the other night. As in, not-in-the-ordinary-way adventure. As in, this-is-supposed-to-only-happen-to-people-in-movies-and-books adventure. As in... yeah. Um, wasn’t quite expecting that. =D Anyway, so what was this [um, interesting...?] adventure?

Well, the other night, I was at this Christian conference thingy diggy with my friends, and as we were leaving it was snowing pretty hard. (The visibility wasn’t the greatest and the roads were pretty slippery.) And we were traveling in a minivan. And there were hills. (You might see where this is going...) So, anyway, we started to go a different way back home then the way that we’d come, but it was so bad that we decided to go back the way we’d come.

(I just realized that that doesn’t make much sense at all. Oh dear... =P)

OK, to summarize -

We’re traveling on a road.

The weather’s bad.

We... are in a minivan.

(Nothing against minivans, of course. I love minivans. =))

So, we’re heading down the road which, thankfully, was mostly downhill, so we didn’t have to like try and climb a slippery hill or something in the minivan which didn’t have four wheel drive or anything.

And then...

We came to a slippery hill or something in the minivan which didn’t have four wheel drive or anything.

So.

We tried to get up the hill, and we couldn’t make it. So we turned around and tried again. I think it was the third time that we decided to get out and push it up the hill while the driver was still inside. So we all piled out and started to push the van up the hill. It wasn’t actually that hard, because there were several of us, and then the van started going so fast that I couldn’t keep up with it and had to stop running.

Strangely enough, I wasn’t scared. (Usually I would get scared at this sort of thing...) For some reason it didn’t actually hit me that we might not actually be able to make it up the hill. =P I think it was also because everybody was so positive and normal and that nobody was panicking, and they just all kept it low-key. Either which way, we actually managed to push it enough to get it going, and our driver drove it up the hill, where we ran... jogged.... and then finally walked up. (OK, the running part was only when I was trying to keep up with the van as it started to pull away from me as we were pushing it... pretty much. ;D) God helped us get up that hill. =)

Anyway, so we got back into the car and drove back home and all lived happily ever after. (Well, so far, of course. ;)) It was actually a kind of fun adventure. =) So, that’s what I’ve been doing lately. What about you? Any adventures out your way? :)

Have a great day! God bless!! :)

Be a hero,
Anna

  1. Thank God He got you through that! As for adventures, I accidentally made my teacher read this book that I recommended, and now she says that she can't get enough sleep.

  2. Oh my goodness...this happens to us at least once a year, and usually on our own mile-long dirt driveway =P
    Praise the Lord you made it!
    Adventures? Not much...
    Well, our house is just about completely covered in SNOW. We'll be lucky if we can even get outside in the morning, let alone get stuck out on the road.
    I once had a dream where I was going out our front door, and when I opened it, there was a tunnel of packed snow. A vision of the future? ;)
