Heavy snow had buried my van in our driveway. My husband dug around the wheels, rocked the van back and forth, and finally pushed me free.

I was on the road when I heard an odd noise. I got on the phone and called home. “Thank goodness you answered,” I said when my husband picked up. “There’s an alarming sound coming from under the van. For a moment I thought I was dragging you down the highway!”

“And you didn’t stop?”
