If you looked at Google Street view or even overhead she's up against a fence, the road curves around and she's well off it.

Had she parked on her driveway instead of on the street, the street could have been properly plowed. I think she is parked on the street so she does not have to plow the driveway. Seems she got trapped in a situation of her own making. Plows will not operate close to vehicles like that because of potential damage. I have no doubt that the city or contractor will be out there soon enough to dig her out, mission accomplished!

Everyone is going to get old one day and karma is a *bleep*. No way to know if she has suffered a couple of strokes has a fake hip or what not. She didn't sound to messed up in the interview and it did sound kind of whiny but there is usually more to the story that we could not see. Sad that our elders seem to get less respect by the day. Kudos to all those that helped her out, I am sure one day the favor will be returned in kind.



Just baffles me, if this lady has any, or all of which has been put forth.
I for one, do not want her driving, not on a good day, and certainly
not out in/on the conditions presented.

Many people are better off stuck, for the good of all.

^^^ I see it differently.

Possible problem created by allowing access to public skating.

I'm scratching my head at this one - I don't get it.

Reminds me of the old man and a broken furnace.

Some people need some help sometimes ..

All this "Why didn't they do this" or "why didn't they do that"..

Just help your neighbor.....

Sometimes helping your neighbour is leaving them stuck in the snow.

May be helping all other road users as well.

Can't get out of your own driveway ?

Maybe it's God's way of making sure she doesn't drive and kill innocent pedestrians in the process because she can't see over the steering wheel.
