Well the blizzard has started.
Last night we had an ambulance run, and sent 1 paramedic across the flooded road on 83 with the National Guard truck to ride with Strasburg 1st Responders to meet with Cambell County Ambulance to take the guy to Mobridge. Then Nolan went around the flooded area to get the paramedic back home. He has been out until 2 or 3 in the morning with either the fire dept., or the ambulance.
Our clinic manager has been battling the flood since Sunday, trying to save her basement, but she gave up the fight today. She is now staying in our asst. living. There are so many people who's homes are a total loss, who work at the hospital. it is all too sad. She has no other shoes besides the boots she has been wearing since Sunday.
Nolan was on TV last night as he was taking a patient who had just been rescued by boat off of his farm. He had to watch his cows drown. It is all too sad. there will be lots more issues as people can get into their homes and start to clean up. That is furthest from anyones minds now, as the snow whips outside the window and you can't see across the street.
Mike K. (jobby) lived 40 years on old town, and he never had his basement flooded. Now it is filled with water and he is staying at the hospital as he is recovering from surgery. We also have 2 other families staying in empty rooms. They came with only the clothes on their backs.
The pics i am posting can all be seen on my facebook also. Too many to do on here.
