4-AlOONA (lewi) ADVANCt MONDAY, MAHCH 21. Storm disrupts life in Ottosen area OH*»en — Storm news took, dinner guests at the Joe Honn precedence over all else this Week when etectficty was sud' denly not available. / Tasks -that had become automatic with the turning of a switch, suddenly became enormous problems. Dairy farmers had to milk many cows by hand or fix up standrby . generators to power the,milking machines. Their families, had plenty of milk to drittft, but no water! Water wasn't available for humans or livestock, as it is pumped electrically. Those who had oil heaters,or ,gas stoves melted ! snow to drink, to cook with and for dishes; Candles .were used for light indoors and flash lights were Used outdoors. Many: famines, dependent on electricity, moved in with neighbors who had warm homes, heated by oil heaters. The Verne Waechter family, stayed with the Tom Bennetts, the James Banwarts with the Leo Tofte- bergs, the Allan Watnems with the 'Percy Watnems, the Oscar Oppedahls with the Louis Jacobsons and the Darrel Jones family' with the Howard Thompsons. The Paul Kampens with their three small sons, one of them; only two weeks old, stayed with Mrs. Annie Leist. Gary Greene and John Mortson were very helpful in help- in'g the. Verne Waechter family to get to a warm shelter. They also helped others. . At the Eugene Struthers farm heavy snow and the strong wind broke down a hay shed roof, killing six lambs that had taken refuge underneath. How did the families get along who stayed home in cold houses? They ate whatever they had on hand, cold cereal with cold milk or anything that was cooked previously. They went to bed to keep warm, catching up on naps, as their chores al- lowedvthem a little respite. Those who had space heaters, but an electric range, ate slowly cooked food, cooked on top of their heaters. How wonderful it was when electficty came on again! Houses were warm, lights functioned, water was available inside and .outside and - many things again" 'Became ^tbihaticY HdW delicious that first meal tasted and how good that first drink of water. Throughout the whole emer gency for the adults, the child ren had a "ball". It was quite exciting to have the lights blink off and on several times, then stay off, and to use candles. It was also very enjoyable to "bundle up", and stay overnight with neighbors, playing long hours the following day with, their children. In order to have electricity again, electrical workers spent long, long, weary hours in the stormy weather, so families throughout the area could, get back to their normal routines in the very shortest time possible.
