Some good came of it already: I helped un-stick a couple drivers trying to traverse largely uncleared roads. Both were in rear-wheel drives with no chains; one in an SUV with his wife ("Here, have your wife drive for a second, and you and I will push." "She doesn't know to drive." "OK, you either teach her, or she comes out here with me." "OK, I teach."). Normally, I give the benefit of the doubt and assume in cases like this that these people needed to get somewhere and had no other options; but in the half-mile walk to the stop I saw so many vehicles spinning that it was a bit of an effort not to conclude that sometimes, folks are just idiots.
There are maybe 3 people here today, so I think I'll write a few letters and eat the cost of an extension, and go home (after making one or two shopping errands).
