Neither a Snow Storm or Pandemic Will Stop a Kind Heart
It's been tough last year or so with the Pandemic, bad weather, etc. But, even with the negative downers, human nature proves again there is goodness out there. This story proves it.
When the cold weather storms hit Texas last week, delivery driver Chelsea Timmons was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
St. Louis's KMOV-TV4 reported that Timmons, who lives three hours away in Houston, said she makes weekly trips to Austin because the delivery market there pays a little more. The 32-year-old picked up one last delivery on Sunday as the snow picked up, thinking she would have time to make it home.
She was attempting to make a delivery to Doug Condon and Nina Richardson in Austin around Valentine’s Day, when her car slid down the driveway of their home, into their flowerbed -- and broke down. The car wouldn’t start. Chelsea was stuck.
Homeowners Doug Condon and Nina Richardson saw it happen and checked on Timmons to try to help get her Toyota Rav4 up the driveway, but it was stuck. So what did they do? They invited her to wait for a tow truck inside their home. That took a little longer than they thought because a tow truck wasn’t available due to the terrible weather. Bad luck, right? Yes and no. Because of the awful Texas weather, her wait for a tow truck took 5-days!
Yes, Chelsea stayed with Doug and Nina for five days. They weathered the storm by enjoying meals together -- and, mostly, just staying warm. Near the end of her stay, Chelsea baked a cake for the couple to show her appreciation for their generosity.
And finally, after five days, things cleared up enough for a repair truck to show up and get Chelsea’s car moving again.
There's a lot of love and goodness out there, especially thanks to Doug and Nina.
