CANADA — If you've ever gotten your vehicle stuck in the snow, you can probably relate to this video.

After the storm that hit the Wasatch Front Monday, it's hard to believe anyone could avoid getting themselves into a situation like that at least once in a while. But at least most of us aren't driving buses.

In the video captured Sunday in Montreal, Quebec, a group of people jumped to the rescue of a bus that was stuck in the snow on a hilly street. According to the video description, "the bus was full of passengers," and the rescuers "had to pull them out of the snow and climb an icy hill."

The video is interesting because even with all the horsepower of the three vehicles pulling the bus, at the beginning, it doesn't look like they are going to make it. As cars zip by the less snowy side of the road, the Toyota 4Runner V8, Toyota Sequoia and Jeep Wrangler Rubicon rev their engines in a desperate attempt to move the bus. But it doesn't seem to budge.

Eventually, they change their strategy a little, and the bus is able to break free from the snow it was stuck in. It's slow going, but you'll enjoy the suspense (I should also warn you that the video gets extremely shaky at this point, so beware).

The video is a good reminder of the power of teamwork, and it is also a reminder to me to never leave my house when it gets really snowy.
