Wanda walked over to Grant’s place to see if we could get an extra blanket for the night. Grant gave her one blanket and asked where we were camping. He knew the spot and was not too pleased with the location. Wanda left with the blanket and returned to the ‘boat.’ We were all shivering very hard and couldn’t get warm. It didn’t look good. We prayed the Lord’s Prayer and sang Jesus Loves Me as we always did in these situations. The doors had closed for us here and there was nothing more we could do. We awaited our fate as we felt the evil situation bearing down on us.
Suddenly Grant’s truck pulled up near the ‘boat’ and he called out. He had talked to his friend Bert who agreed to put us up for the night in his garage. Thankful for this reprieve from certain death, we loaded our gear into Grant’s truck and he took my wife and daughters to Bert’s house. I had to walk Milo over since there was no room in Grant’s truck for everyone.
Bert had a heated garage attached to his house where we could sleep. It had a concrete floor but we didn’t care as it was out of the wind and cold. At least we wouldn’t be outside and we were very thankful for his kindness.
