When you consider parking alongside the next big snow bank - or worse still, riding over it - recall the cautionary example of Edward John Smith. 

Q: Who is he?

Clue #1: The statue

Today Smiths stone countenance gazes across a park in Litchfield, England; but on April 15, 1912, he watched his dream vanish.

  

Clue #2: What kind of lettuce is this?

 

Clue #3: And as the smart ship grew,

In stature, grace, and hue,

In shadowy silent distance grew the Iceberg too.

Thomas Hardys pome, The Convergence of the Twain describe Skipper Smiths ship and the fate that it faced.


 

Answer: Appearances can be deceiving. Although compress snow may look light and fluffy, it can be hard as rock. Next time you see a mountain of snow and ice, do what Captain Smith neglected to do - give it a wide berth. Remember that Captain Smiths RMS Titanic was deemed unsinkable. But it sank.
