On Monday, one of the coldest days I have experienced since moving back to Iowa, I came downtown and pulled into an alley where I turned around to park in front of my office building. Everything was fine until I tried to back out. I was stuck in a deep drift of snow. I tried going back and forth to no avail. Finally, I decided to call my son-in-law to come help.

Suddenly, an angel in a UPS uniform approached my car and started kicking the snow from under my tires. He didnít say much, but he did both sides. I got back in the van and he pushed from the front and in seconds I was free. I wanted to properly thank him, but everyone knows how quickly these people have to run around, especially at Christmas. He was gone in a flash. I hope he reads this, it was Monday around 6 a.m. at the alley on Second Street.

Thank you and I hope Christmas is especially good to you this year.
