Magic Carpets!


Stuck in the snow?  Does your vehicle have floor mats?  They are magic!

When we were promised 18+ inches of snow, our son parked his Prius in our driveway.  Only three inches of snow arrived at our place.  He walked down to get his car.  Shouldn’t have been a problem at all to get out.  However, several days with temps in the 20s had those tires frozen solid.  He chipped, dug and shoveled and we just couldn’t get the car to budge.  I was going to back in my car to tow when I remembered about Magic Carpets!

These are some old rugs I keep to protect the back of my car when hauling firewood for those cute grandkid’s Woodpecker Firewood Business.  We tucked those rugs under the tires and backed right out until we hit another patch of that icy snow.  Moved the Magic Carpets again and got right out.

I’m guessing most of you have floor mats in your vehicle?  This time of year, it is always a good idea to have a shovel with you, too. A shovel, plus magic carpets could just save the day!

Bonnie Phelps, just lovin’ this snow!

PS – There’s no business like snow business … for seeing property on Palomar!
