Serendipity Sunday-Angels Among Us
This is a short story.
We bought our first horse trailer yesterday.
The weather for the entire day was horrendous. Rain, cold, wind, totally not the kind of day you want to be picking up a large trailer and driving through rain torrents and windy roads for two hours one way.
We braved most of it until we reached the last half hour of our journey home to our ranch.
We're on a very narrow, two-lane "highway" (Hwy 47 going towards Mist, OR) that creeps up to an elevation of 1320 feet with sharp hairpin turns. Scary drop-offs, incredible slopes and alders that lean towards the road on the steep hillsides.
Treacherous at times.
We're winding up the hill and a snow plow passes on the other side. A minute later we come upon a huge tree that had JUST fallen across the entire road.
My husband uttered an expletive.
We were screwed.
Not more than 15 seconds went by and a large dark green rig comes down the hill on the other side, stops, the youngish man gets out, grabs a chainsaw from the back, and lickety-split, takes care of the tree. Three of us pull the large chunks off to the side and we are all on our way in less than five minutes!
Now, tell me there aren't angels among us????!!!!
