Boise City Getting Back to Normal

Power has been restored and many who have been snowed in for days finally got a chance to get out. NewsChannel 10's Felicia Lafuente is with more of our on-going coverage.  

One of the big items on the 'to do list today" has been going to the grocery store for many folks.  Bret Moore is the owner of a grocery store in Boise City, where he says there has been a huge increase in customers. "We have customers coming in that were just getting dug out."


Aston Hawthorne and his family finally made it into Boise City today after being snowed in and having no electricity for four days. "Some of the frozen vegatables some of the meat we lost we used snow as an ice box for milk and stuff like that. The kerosene lamps we have had for 10 to 15 years. We had never used them but they sure came in handy this time. It brought back my childhood memories when we didn't have any electricity."


Others like Roy Patt remember a winter storm just like the recent one and were prepared. "We have been through this before...the storm of '59, started like this one and it was the same way this one was."
  

Now residents say they will prepare in case of another winter storm. Many of the residents we spoke with live 30 to 40 miles out of Boise City so they stocked up on plenty of groceries before heading home this afternoon.
