The car did make it out of the driveway, but could not go back up with all 
the snow.  This happens all the time on our highways in the winter, as 
people seem to think snow is no different than rain.  My John Deere tractor 
with snow blower could not make it up our driveway without chains, weights, 
and liquid filled tires, so a minivan with only 2WD has no chance when snow 
is in place.

A car that would not be able to pull this off would need to be put down.
And replaced by a more enthusiastic and hardy breed.
When we need a Humvee to get out of our driveway its time to get the army
corps of engineers to re think our landscaping, redo our driveway grade,
fill in some potholes.
