Don't know why people try to advice what he should or shouldn't do. This was NOT his first winter storm, It was his 53rd winter and he experienced more than 53 storms before. This storm started to get deadly on afternoon. If not, who would go school and work? This northern Island is covered by snow for half of every year. People in this area knows what to do since their grand parent's era. Most of people said "I've never experienced this deadly storm in my life. and it became deadly all of the sudden". 9 human lives are taken in one night.
It was visibility of few feet, Cellular signal dead with some reason after his last successful call. His truck was low on fuel. wind gust 50mph in some point. He knew or not, there are only 3 firefighter/rescue crew in small rural town which was 2 miles from where he was. Also, he was fisherman who doesn't take power of mother nature lightly.
In last successful call, He said he will walk to relative's house with his daughter which is less than quarter of mile from where his truck was stuck.
Why won't you guys focus to what he did in his final few hours.
