With a wiggle and a jiggle, the truck is released from its icy grave.

Snow molded like concrete in the wheel wells, the tires spin and stick in complaint against the wrecker for its rough treatment.

Bumping and jumping, the wrecker’s winch line whines and strains against the elements as they are stretched thin by the weight of the truck as it slowly crawls up the embankment.

The truck digs in, a last attempt to stay nestled in its carved path of destruction of snow, rock, trees, and ice.

Finally with a final gasp, the truck breaks free and the wrecker pulls the truck valiantly up the hill to the road surface.
