My girlfriend and I were on our way home from a yoga class and it was very cold and wet outside.
Snow was starting to fall and it was sticking to the ground.
It was very dark outside and it was hard to see. We decided to take the interstate, hoping it would be faster with less traffic. Unfortunately, there were two accidents on the highway and we were stuck in traffic for 2 hours. When we got close to our exit, the car started to sputter and smoke. We were only five miles away from home, but I knew the car was not going to make it. We pulled over to the side of the road and that’s when I noticed that we were out of gas. The car wouldn’t turn back on after I shut it off, so we were stuck on the side of the road in the cold weather without any heat. I contacted the tow service and they agreed to send someone to pick us up. It was supposed to take an hour, but it was closer to 2 hours. When the tow truck driver finally showed up, my girlfriend and I felt like we were freezing to death. Thankfully the tow truck driver turned the heat on high for us. We sat inside of their tow truck while the guy loaded our car onto the back. The truck driver took us to the car dealership and stayed there until we had a taxi back home. He let us sit inside the cab with the heat running until the yellow car arrived to take us home.
