Storm reports are {IVOR for north Kossuth (By Mr*, Kenneth Brent*) Sw«« Eagle — Since news |_ thering is fibout nil under the circumstances, reports are mostly unconfirmed, word of mouth, grapevine reports, so no names will be used, as some* times unconfirmed stories are so enlarged upon that by the time they return to the ears of the principal characters, they are practically unrecognizable. Three members of the feminine sex, a mother and daughter, and passenger were reported to have spent 11 hours stranded northwest of Swea City on the blacktop road. Their car slid off the road in such a precarious position as to make it so uncomfortable that they fasten ed their seat belts to make their sloping car easier to sit in. They had walked a ways down the road, but didn't know just where they were and went back to the car to wait. A near by farmer found them the next morning and took them to his home. Several farmers were reported to have purchased portable generators to aid in operating pumps and other facilities abou their farms. One man who has a milking able animate for misttttis. Many television antennas were partially stripped, some bent over double, decorative trees and shrubbery ruined from the ruthless winds and heavy snow and ice. Pieces from an antenna were found Sunday as ice melted from a porch post. The parts were pieces of anodized aluminum were torn from the antenna of a second house at this particular farm place. At one place it was calving ime and new mothers and about to be mothers had to be rounded up repeatedly and dri ven back into the cattle shed The high drifts and water hortage contributed to the wan dering of the cows. One family was reported to lave to seek refuge at another home when their oil burner smoked up the house during the fierce wind. They were lucky to be able to reach another place to stay. One farmer reportedly lost 400 baby turkeys one night, and no reports as to how many were lost before he was finally able to get heat and water for them. One man said he used a blow torch to heat water for coffee. They had some light, as his wife had several antique lamps. One man walked a mile late Wednesday afternoon to do what chores he could, and tried to get home on a tractor, but got stuck and had to walk a half mile the rest of the way. He arrived home around 8 o'clock and made the remark he would have stayed at the place where his chores were lowing somewhat, and lite nan had been ill most pi the win* eats' f ter, and wasn't used to braving Dodge. he elements, tie was about e* hausted when he arrived home. This immediate vicinity was without electricity for 110 hours and 40 minutes. The first welcome electric sound to reach •his reporter's ears was the Hizzing of a clock radio at the home of her parents. It was so sudden and unexpected, her head snapped around at. the abrupt sound, and she yelled "Light, lights, lights!" That was at approximately 10:40 Sunday morning. Some stories had it that we wouldn't have lights until Mon day and others, Wednesday, so it really was unexpected. The cold incapacitated houses had different effects on dif ferent people. Some sat aroun< huddled up, trying to keep warm. Others had to get around, care for children, livestock, oldsters, etc. This one worried about her parents, managed to get there to see them Thursday afternoon, by walking over a mile, part of the way ver a plowed field, which was ough going indeed.
