First, thank you for your kindness. Good of you to
warm up the boy, loan him clothes, etc. Wish more
adults were as caring. And you phoned his parents,
I'd dare to guess they were concerned.
As to the pony, there was writing in the Little
House on the Prarie books, the year of the big
winter. Pa had two horses, using them to go out
to bring in prarie grass to burn. One would go
insane when he punched through the snow, other
horse would calmly stand.
I live in SouthEastern Penna - not exactly the now belt.
One winter I was driving up to the Poconos intent on doing some
cross-country skiing.... Well, no snow there either... so I figured
"Just keep driving North until I see snow".
Wound up in Watertown N.Y. - which, I found out later, is subject to
"lake effect snow"....i.e. they get 5-7 inches of snow every night.
To make a long story short, I was skiing through this little forest of
evergreens - grown, I figured, for the Christmas tree trade because they
were all 5-6' high.
One of my ski bindings was getting clogged with snow/ice, so I stopped
and stood on one leg while I cleared the binding.
Then I thought, "Let's take the other ski off just to make sure that one
isn't on the way to getting clogged".
"Ploomph!".... Turns out those trees were more like 8-12 feet high....
I wound up nose-deep in snow (I'm 6'5" tall) and really, *really*,
REALLY scared... figured that was the end.
Can't recall how I did it, but finally wound up back on the surface and
on my skis.... But I think it could have gone either way.
One thing I noticed: they did not plow the roads. Instead, they ran
grading machines to smooth out the snow. Only place I saw blacktop was
an area about 50' across where the two main streets in town crossed.
Never saw anybody stuck, never saw anybody skidding or having other
problems with traction.
Sounds like an updated version of Pa being trapped in a snowbank in
one of the Little House books. He'd walked back from town with candy
for Laura and Mary in his pocket, and he got so hungry, he ended up
eating it. When the storm died down and he dug himself out, he found
he was just a short distance from their shanty.

Agree. My bet is that the fire would burn but the tank would not blow up. Whatever air is in the tank would be fuel rich to the point the vapor would not burn/explode until he tank was ruptured, not just a small puncture.
Some candle sticks will be good source of heat inside the car.
I have them plus some chocolate and protein bars, emergency blanket,
tow rope, chain, small shovel, always carried as a emergency kit in
winter time. Also I always fill gas when tank is half full just to be
sure. If you got stranded stay put, never wander off. Also I have DC
charger for cell phone and my ham radio handi talkie.
I read that was the case till about 2009, when
Obama started to control the weather with
executive orders. Of course, can't believe
everything. Some say the global New World
Order is controlling the weather.
