Fascinating random Christmas story.
Nuggets retreat at the thought...
Yup, happened right in my area. Crazy stuff!
The Lord is wondrous...
Grief! My first sentence wouldn't have been, 'Wow. I've been here a long time!' It would have been, 'Um.....I need to pee.'
She probably didn't need to pee. Have you never heard of yellow snow?
You're obviously referring to the positive outcome of the story. What about the horrible situation itself, was the Lord taking a 3-day long wondrous break?
I am glad that she was found before it was too late.
That being said, why was she leaving to do grocery shopping in the middle of a blizzard?
Um, no. At 30F she would have been frozen solid and quite dead. I think you mean 30 Celsius (86F).
Just because she has a strong will to live doesn't mean she has common sense
Quite true, I suppose!
nope. the reporting is correct. snow has the ability to insulate so despite the extreme temperatures, it was warmer (although still cold) where her body was laying in the snow. re: igloos. If she had been laying out in the open, you're correct - she would have been solid ice.
She is in danger of losing some limbs apparently due to frostbite, but only time will tell.
Sorry but you are wrong. This is obviously a typo in the article. 30F is below freezing. She would be very dead and stiff as a board - literally frozen solid at 30F. As I pointed out previously the temperature must have been 30C. Re-read the article, they have edited out that part of the story and the only place you can find it now is in the picture caption where they have changed it to 30C rather than 30F.
No, AmbitiousLemon is right - the article refers to her body temperature, not that of the snow. Snow at 30°C would be equally impressive
Waiting for the Wii 2?
Yep, and with a nice ending!
Thanks for sharing.
