25. no, but in depression era texas and oklahoma panhandle

you know that they did

you just made me think of this....
when my grandfather was back from WW2, he got a job and worked for several years for the
county...he worked for the county they lived in, when my mom was young.

It snowed so much one time that people were trapped in their cars, stuck on the roads...and keep in mind this was
1950s in a rural Texas area.

They were having a horrible snow and blizzard.
He actually did walk 5 miles in the snow to get to the county barn to get to the
tractors, and rescued about 5 people, and was gone for two or three days.

I don't know how he got food or slept, but they weren't tall-tale tellers.
