A Texas couple rescued and sheltered a delivery driver for nearly a week after she was stranded in the driveway during the brutal Valentine’s Day winter storm.
Chelsea Timmons said in a now-viral Facebook post that she was delivering groceries to the family in Austin last Sunday when her car spun out of control while trying to go down the steep driveway.
“I realized that I had lost control of the car,” he said. “I braced myself for the impact as the car slides toward his house.”

Although he missed the house, Timmons ended up rolling into his flowerbed before crashing into a tree stump.
“I was able to turn my car, but the slope was COVERED in ice and my wheels just spun and my car slid down, try after try,” he wrote.
Timmons told “Good Morning America” that the couple, Nina Richardson and Doug Condon, tried to help her move the car, but were unsuccessful.
Richardson and Condon let Timmons wait inside for AAA, but the company eventually told him it was “inaccessible due to current conditions,” according to their Facebook post.
Timmons then tried calling Uber, Lyft, and a cab to take her to a nearby hotel, but conditions got worse.

Soon after, Richardson and Condon offered her an additional room in the house. The kind gesture brought tears to her eyes.
“These people let a complete STRANGER stay the night! Not only that, but they made me a STEAK DINNER! Definitely not how I imagined my Valentine’s Day!” she wrote.
Due to the intensity of the storm, which led to widespread power outages and horrible road conditions, Timmons became a welcome guest for six days.
When she suggested leaving, the couple responded by saying, “Could you get there safely?” “What would you eat?” “What if they lose energy?” Or “Isn’t the guest room better than the one at the Hampton Inn?” she said.
Timmons said he would go back to the guest room every morning and “shed tears of joy.”

“More than grateful to have been able to find comfort with strangers during this unprecedented winter storm,” she said.
