Snow brings out Chattanooga's good Samaritans

photo Terry Jones prepares to move his wife's stranded vehicle from a hill on Harvest Run Drive in Harrison on Wednesday. He says she walked the remaining two-thirds of a mile to their home wearing open-toed shoes Tuesday, and that the car had been sideswiped while parked overnight.

Chris Cowart's day started going downhill at 2 p.m. Tuesday. Literally. He parked on a hill at Kennesaw University just north of Atlanta, put his emergency brake on -- and promptly slid backward down the slope into a brick wall.

"But it didn't mess anything up," he said. "Got lucky there."

So Cowart, who works for Campus Bellhops in Chattanooga, hopped on Interstate 75 and headed south to meet his co-worker in Atlanta.
