    The place was covered with over 20 feet of snow blown in off the lake, cars were completely burried under it all.

    The town road had six feet of snow on it, was not until four days later that an army guard D-8 cleared the road.

    No power for over a week, almost no food and just a little pot bellied stove for heat in one room. water came from melted snow.

    That storm sent me on my prepper journey that I am still on to this day.

    That coming summer, a coal bunker was built, 2 tons of stove coal put in it, and a coal stove put into the living room.

    Genset was added to get water out of the well and run other things.

    That was just the beginning of the quest.

    We used our farm equipment to open the roads so milk trucks could get in. We are always last . The night it hit we used a couple larger tractor to get people out of their cars and take then to local tavern that stay open all night to shelter and feed people .
    We hauled a lot of people that night.

    Yes, 2020 has taken the cake but it wasn’t due to natural events. This has been a manufactured event to further the Agenda.

    I was only 5 years old. I remember Dad having to crawl out the kitchen window to shovel the drift off our door so we could get out of the house. It instilled some knowledge in me at that young age. Shet happens, be ready!
