Our 500' downhill stone lane is still covered with snow and ice- it's as clear as a plow could get it. When we left this morning, about half way down I noticed my neighbor's RAV 4 blocking the lane- right front wheel in the ditch to the right side, hopelessly stuck in the snowbank. I was sliding badly in my Subaru, but was able to slowly back up the lane. I got out the tractor, and with the rear chains giving me traction on the ice, I was able to slip past him, hook up a tow strap, and drag him back on the lane. Without chains, it would have been impossible to even get past him. Normally, I don't need them, but when you do, you do!
