Carey to the Rescue

Don't try this at home, kids

    Don't try this at home, kids!

    NBC4’s Julie Carey was out in the snow, doing live coverage of this year's big snowstorm, when a car got stuck right behind her live shot.

    The driver was headed to work from his house and found himself in a bit of a jam, with his wheels spinning in the snow.

    Without a second thought, Carey rushed to the back of the car to give the driver a hand. Literally.

    And that was after she'd been standing out in the snow for about seven hours, reporting on the dangerous road conditions from Tysons Corner.

    Some reporters get all the storms. Some drivers get all the luck.

    Need to drive in the snow? With a little advice, you can make it safely through.
