Yep, we got stuck. I picked the kids up from school, and we made it all the way up the huge hill until the very last turn. We started to slide back down, and we had no traction. I tried the hill again and ran into the same problem. Six eager kids were excited to get out and help push the van up the last bit. We finally made it!
Then I had to open the gate into the driveway. (Remember that all houses here have gates and fences around the yard.) That means we had to stop again. That means we got stuck again. No momentum to get going. Tires spinning and going no where. Kids hop out again to push. Lezlee from across the street comes to help. Many tries later, we are free. Yeah!
This entire thing took 15 minutes to go less than 100 meters. The kids could have almost walked home from school in that time!
Then tonight, Zsolt took me home after English class. (Long story as to why I couldn't drive.) He was up the hill and into their driveway in one try and without any problems. Ugh. Tomorrow should be no problems as the snow is pretty well packed down now. The problem is when the sun is out and it starts to melt and becomes that yucky slush stuff.
Anyway, we are all home safe and sound and enjoying the winter wonderland, our first really since moving here!
