They were supposed to go to Grandma’s for Thanksgiving, but the blizzard came in fast. They were sixty minutes into the trip up the turnpike. The snow whipped around so hard they could barely see out the windows.
Sqeee kathunk squeeeee ka…thunk…squeeeeeee. The windshield wipers were freezing to the windshield!
The car slipped and slid another two miles through the thick snow along the deserted road and then, it broke down.
“I’ll call for help,” Dad said pulling his cell phone out. “OH my, I don’t have any reception,” Dad added quietly.
One hour, then two hours passed. Snow piled up around the car and everyone started to get nervous.
“We’re HUNGRY,” whined Robert and Roberta.
“I have some gum,” said a worried Mom.
“I’m thirsty,” little Fredrick cried.
“Keep calm Fred,” Dad thought quickly. “Want some snow?”
“I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM,” Wendy shouted.
Mom put her hands on her head, “I need an aspirin!”
Suddenly, they were blinded by a light stabbing through the falling snow. It was a snow plow!
BRRRRRR, the giant plow was headed straight for them!
“I hope the driver sees us,” Dad said a bit worried.
“The snow plow driver is waving at us,” Mom said.
“That’s no ordinary snow plow driver!” They all screamed. “It’s GRANNY!”
“Hi kids!” Granny shouted over the motor of the truck. “Need a ride?”
Once in the truck, everyone was smiling and laughing, everyone except Wendy.
“I STILL HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM!”
