Engulfed in snow, stranded motorist ‘felt like I was underground, buried in a casket’

...

Rossi, who just turned 47, found a scrap of paper in her purse, tore it in half and started farewell notes to her daughters.

“I wrote letters to both of them,” she said.

Although she was wet, cold and exhausted, she continued to climb out the window, crawl her way up and wave the red snow brush out of the hole in the snowbank, hoping it would attract someone’s attention. Finally, it did.

“He saw me because I had decided to crawl out the window and started digging up and finally broke through with the red snow brush,” she said. “I waved that forever. My arm would get sore, and I would stop, and then start again.”

Then she heard a voice.

“I see you, I’m going to get you out,” a man’s voice yelled out. “I have a shovel.”

2. Logic probably fails us in such situations sometimes.

I wonder if the daughter had heard the phone at 3 am.

3. the article said her daughter told her to keep the exhaust pipe clear...

 

and the mother knew approximately where she was, and that
she was stuck.
