Just wanted to leave a big THANK YOU to everyone who chimed in on my fan belt problem as discussed here:

Fan Belt Tossed In A Weird Way

I used the method of cutting the belt, and CRANKing the engine in spurts while I pulled on it until it worked its way free. My kid took a video:

Video: Fan Belt Was Really Stuck

Worked like a charm and the new belt is on and I'm back in business.
