Letters to the editor: Prank could have been deadly

Dear editor, Recently my husband was driving along Eighth Line around 8:45 p.m. when his car hit a huge snowball that had been rolled out purposely onto the road. The weather had frozen it so much more making it more like a boulder. Thank God he is okay because the size of the snowball went beyond the height of our car. He actually thought the person driving ahead of him was intoxicated because they swerved into the oncoming traffic but made it back in time. My husband had no choice, but to hit the snowball. The impact to our vehicle was considerable and resulted in almost $2,500 damage. The impact it made on him was even more. The what ifs started. Especially, what if we were in the car, the kids, the oncoming traffic, the reaction... Hopefully someone reads this letter and remembers seeing or knowing whoever did this practical joke. The bill is irrelevant (even though the timing isn't great) but LIVES, not only ours, my husband, the people ahead of him or the people in the oncoming traffic could have been lost or seriously injured. Even on my way home two days later there were still the remnants of the snowball. Yep, Frosty got creamed, but thank goodness no real lives were taken. Samantha Dixon, Georgetown
