Nova Scotia Power driver to the rescue
I live in Mira and I drive a 10year old, rear-wheel drive, lowto-the-ground sporty car that my husband does not want to give up. He drives a 4-wheel drive jeep to work.
I have a steep driveway that proves to be difficult to navigate at times in the winter months. Last week, I got stuck and slid back down the drive into a snowdrift. As I tried to shovel my way clear, I volleyed between rage and selfpity.
Then something wonderful happened. A guy named Mike was driving by in a Nova Scotia Power truck and saw me struggling as I shoveled snow from under the car while on my knees, getting, as they say, “soaking wet.”
He was to me “the person who stopped to help, even though he did not have to.”
With his bags of salt, expertise, some instructions to me and a push, I got the car out. He would accept nothing but a thank you.
I wanted to shout about this good deed from the rooftops so I am writing to the Cape Breton Post.
In these dreary days of political uncertainty, nice people are what counts. Mike is my true Canadian Idol.
