on or about december 21st we recieved anywhere from 8 to 12 inches of snow as it was really hard to tell with 50 mph sustained winds for 8 to 10 hours .
I left work at 1100 am to make it home before the storm really got bad "35" miles only to get stuck on our country road 2 miles from home.
I walked home "2 MILES" and grabbed my turbocharged arctic cat "1 HOUR WALK" and drove into town "1" mile to meet my dw whom was also at work so as we could drive out to where my truck was to pull it out with our suburban she was driving.
NO DICE ! couldn't even get close to it the wind and snow was so bad .
so we drove to the neighbors and grabbed his 4x4 deer to go pull out truck.
we got it out in short order and drove back to town to leave our vehicles and ride the sled home.
we finally walked in the house at 345 pm
About 7 pm the county sheriff called and said they had to stranded younger men in a shed out in the country they had heat and shelter but one needed heart medication and they were 3 miles from no where in the blizzard .
did i mention 50 mph sustained winds for 8 or so hours ?
so my son and I trekked out on sleds to meet the sheriff at the sheriffs station 18 miles away .
took us 1 hour to get there and that was riding right down the hi way.
he told us where they were and handed us the heart meds and food and water to get them through the night .
we got them there supplies and headed home and reached home at 1030 pm.
Heres what we saw the next day when the wind had subsided. about 800 am.
PS we had zero snow until this storm.
