Don't get intimidated by stupid rig-pigs driving jacked-up pickup trucks that come flying up behind you at mach-chicken. Keep safe and consistent and you'll eventually get the chance to give them the one finger salute when they're sitting in the ditch.

I'll just keep doing what I do then. Thank for the advice.

Seems the high winds blew alot of snow away from my car, too bad the plows piled it up

Thats not piss, its de-icer. Apparatly snow likes to build up in there when the winds are high.

....that doesn't look that bad. I go out on purpose when the snow hits hard here in Maine, and I keep mooring line in the back of my SUV for when I find a stranded motorist to pull out. Hell, I found a state plow truck on the side of the road one day, he couldn't get up the hill in town. I pulled up next to him, and offered to pull him up the hill, but another plow truck was on it's way to get him he said, and he declined to let me hook him up. I don't really worry about getting stuck off in a snowbank or ditch, seeing as how I drive down unplowed logging roads for the hell of it - the deeper, the better the challenge!

Then you know that once your high centered, you SOL no matter what you drive. If this was normal weather here I would get something with a bit more ground clearance, but typically we only get 3-4 inches at a time. And even in my little car that's a blast in a country road.

High centered? In snow? Everytime I lose forward momentum and start to spin bad, I reverse for a few feet - and punch forward real hard. Go google some videos of snow wheeling for a good idea. And this is just how I get around on old logging roads that have up to several feet of accumulation due to the fact that nobody plows dirt roads in the middle of nowhere. You get off in the ditch while losing momentum - yeah, you can be momentarily stuck, but all you need to get out is a shovel. I also have skidplates the length of my rig - it slides though like a greased hotdog.

Now as far as what you were doing - even if you hear snow rubbing you still have quite a bit deeper you can go - just go a little faster and stay on top of it. When you start spinning your tires lots faster than you are actually moving - THEN it's time to start thinking about getting off the road. I would have just driven home and avoided pulling into the gas station's ditch. That just doesn't make any sense at all.
