Texas homeowners take in delivery driver during winter storm

 

When a delivery driver's car began sliding down on an icy Texas driveway, the driver closed her eyes, praying she wouldn't hit the client's home.
She didn't hit the house but Chelsea Timmons' car crushed a flowerbed outside an Austin, Texas, home as a snowstorm paralyzed the state. She didn't know it yet, but she would soon be grateful to end up in this particular driveway.
Homeowners Doug Condon and Nina Richardson checked on Timmons to try to help get her Toyota Rav4 up the driveway, but it was stuck. They invited her to wait for a tow truck inside their home.
The bad weather persisted a lot longer than any of them thought. Five days later, Timmons was still living with the couple.

    1. @Wally Censorship What are you talking about I’m a black Texas? This story is about the true Texas state motto “THE FRIENDSHIP STATE” don’t put my state with Republican, Democrat division stuff we have enough problems here we are Texans first American second. God Bless Texas

    2. @fck you So the fascist Republicans who stormed the Congress to stop the Democratic process I guess you called them Americans am I right. An as a black Texan I’ll call you a a Nazi lover

    3. @Chauncey W Hey !! Wait I’m a texan I love AOC, may not like some of her policies but I truly love her heart

    1. They’ve always known. What a completely ignorant comment you made but….that’s your forte isn’t it?!

    1. @Anita Mendez Alright then let me lay down some facts the people of Texas are not his responsibility that responsibility lies with the governor and mayors of Texas the senators only responsibility is to represent his or her state while passing bills and that’s about it and if you wanna go off of logical reasoning him and his family being in Texas would just be more mouths to feed instead of it going to people who actually need it and even if he stayed in Texas what would that change exactly the answer is absolutely nothing and that’s just a fact, the most he could do is set up a food drive which would require people to drive on icy roads which is dangerous enough on its own but is even more dangerous for people who have rarely if ever driven on icy roads at all

    2. @José Hunter’s EW&F Remixes If we’re going to talk about punctuation then where’s that period to mark the end of your sentence???

    1. @K B Y’all? Guess your from one of those states where people marry their cousins. As for homeless Cali just needs to kick out all the clod kicking morons from hick states. They go to Cali where its warm during the winter and mild during the summer and too stupid to find a quality job.

  1. I was delivering when tornadoes were touching down around me when the people I was delivering to begged me to come into their home. I refused and made a break for it but there is good people in this world. I’m black and they were white

    1. I once drove a fellow student from Kansas to Ohio, and I was really road weary when I got him home. His parents invited me to stay the night. I am white, they are black. We all are just people.

    1. @EDUARDO OLIVER OLIVER Well hello again Ed. Yes you are right. Biden is storming ahead to get America back on track.

    2. @K B Did you have to pull the tweezers out to a rise for yourself with that low-life remark…..Worthless Pissant

    3. @Mimi Keel It was a morally repugnant remark. Your taste in funny is in conflict with the general rule of humor…except in maybe your local bar….not on a public forum. So go pound salt.

  2. Hey Texans;
    When a grocery delivery driver & good Samaritans are better representatives of your State than Ted Cruz.

    1. @Ewiger Schüler Just because they’re a different party, doesn’t mean they don’t have a heart. These are what represents togetherness

    2. SO WHY IS CNN NOT TALKING ABOUT CUOMO AND THE SCANDAL OF THE NURSING HOMES? CNN KEPT CHEWING AND REGURGITATING TEDD CRIZ EVVERY HOUR..

    3. @kaiss-K -Ci because republicans are hypocrites and if you want to blame cumo for those deaths than look at yourself and your party, not wearing mask, attending big rallies, you don’t care about people nor are you pro life.

    4. @Daniel Virrey this Cuomo scandal has nothing to do with partisan politics. The man knowingly manipulated his staff to falsify government documents with false information. His gross negligence, refusal to be remorseful, and arrogant attitude towards the families is inexcusable. He’s not a terrible Democrat, he’s just a terrible human being.

  3. Inspiring and heartwarming story
    Blessed for that samaritan couple
    for welcoming stranger in their home. I wish all “KARENS” out
    there could learn from them.

    1. @soonersdevil Report and ignore. Youtube is paying a bit more attention now, with all the Russian Troll bots all over these kind of videos.

  4. This is just the story we need to hear right now America is praying for all Texans and God bless the family that allowed the young lady to come in and get shelter for 5 days

  5. Thank you for being an example of how kind Americans could be. Empathy and consideration has been so lost on Americans these days-this story was everything!

  6. While AOC raised $4 million for Texans, Cruz turned tail and ran. He still can’t fathom his responsibility to help his constituents. He’s not stopping the electricity price gouging and insuring that the utility executives and their shareholders bear the full burden of the record weather damages and winterizing costs for their generating plants so this doesn’t happen again.

    1. God forbid teddy bear got his fat butt out in the streets and did a little actual labor.lol he is so creepy

    2. @Creme Brulee His power may stop at begin a senator, I can’t image him sitting in the Oval Office after this stunt.

  7. Republican response to California emergency: “Your blue state sucks. Haha!”

    Democrat response to Texas emergency: AOC raises 5+ million for Texas.

    1. @Obi Calzone in reality about 5% of the population cares what happens to others, go do an experiment, go sit on the curb like your homeless, and out of ten people MAYBE one might stop and help with something, the rest will walk by like you dont even exist. Better yet go to a shopping center or somewhere in public and fall down and hurt yourself or get in a car accident and see how many people stop to help, maybe two or three out of ten at the most IF your lucky, that’s reality, people suck.

    2. @Alan Peters I completely get that sentiment but we need to be better. I’ve seen the best and the worst of people but that’s no excuse to be a better person.

    3. some ideas for a better planet

      Matthew 5: 27-28
      “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

      Luke 17:1
      And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come!

      better stop producing / uploading / watching “music videos”.. (or similar videos, pics, profile pictures, thumbnails, title names, headlines, usernames + harmful comments, bad words, swearing, lies, disrespect, harmful lyrics etc! on social media + everywhere else too.
      “Temptations to sin” / seduction etc. must stop)
      start deleting? censoring etc?
      destroy your smartphones, cams, data storage devices etc? would be better.
      remove temptations / seduction + other evil things from TV, magazines, radio stations, broadcasting etc? would be better.
