"We're freeeeee ... Thank God for tractors!"
WRAL reporter Tara Lynn just emailed that to our newsroom, along with a picture of a tractor pulling one of our trucks out of a ditch.
Tara and photographer Tom Normanly were in Edgecombe County, working on a story about a house fire, when they got stuck "in a very, very wet ditch," according to Tara.
"This guy drove by and offered to go get his tractor! Otherwise, we'd have to wait on a tow truck to come from Raleigh!!!" she said.
Thanks to the friendly tractor driver, Bobby Norris, for helping our news crew, and thanks to Tara for the pictures :)
