Good Samaritans Come to Snow Rescue

Posted: Updated:

Even a severe blizzard couldn't freeze the warm hearts of North Dakotans and Minnesotans as we fought tour way out of nearly a foot of snow this morning.

"It was awful, there was snow everywhere," Tasha Gorentz said as she took a shovel to her driveway this morning.

Nine inches of snow may be enough weight on our shoulders, but not on our hearts.

"We were out here shoveling the driveway cause I didn't get to mine last night then the neighbor- I haven't even met him yet- he offered for us to use his snow blower," she said.

Tasha's driveway was left untouched as the snow came down, while her elderly neighbor's was cleared completely.

She decided to shovel that one out anonymously instead of saving her own.

As some neighbors shoveled, others patrolled.

Eric Freitag worked a 16-hour shift, pulling dozens of cars to safety.

"They would come up off an emergency route road, trying to get back to their home off a secondary street and they would get stuck," Eric described last night's hard work in nearly white-out conditions.

He did it without payment.

Tasha did it without reward.

"I was just raised that way, when someone needs your help and you have the means to do it, then you should," she said.

Because what's nine inches against two hands and a heart?
