"we're able to run 2 freezers and the fridge and the furnace, we just don't have any water." the couple's friend á dean cowell á was lucky enough to only be in the dark for 2 days á and has offered the nydegger's a place to shower á and do laundry. "we got ourselves a gas stove in the house, so we turned that on. it was 67á68 in the house, and we thought it was good enough for us." cowell's pretty prepared. "i got 2 deep freezers full of meat down in the basement, and if there was more people that need food, i can give it to them." across the road from the nydegger's... is larry ausborn. thanks to a neighbor down the road... he's getting necessary water for his livestock.
