Almost like the little engine that could.

Hey, we may be a day late and a dollar short, but here's the local video that was trending across Facebook yesterday.

It shows an 18-wheeler facing uphell and spinning on the ice on Route 1, otherwise known to the locals as "college hill", in Machias.

But fear not, this is Maine, and we're known for our "can do" attitudes, especially in Washington County.

Watch as a plow guy in a Ford pickup truck comes up from behind and lends a helping hand, or in the case, a helping plow.

This had to have made the driver of the big rig very happy, and he was probably wishing that the guy in the pickup would follow him all the way to Bangor!
