CHICAGO — Two days after the blizzard and a week after a massive snowstorm dumped more than a foot of snow on the Colorado Rockies, a Colorado couple is finally getting the help they need to get home.
Their rescue, by a man named Joe and his wife, has been featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
It all started on the day the couple was vacationing in Mexico, and Joe had just finished a job he was doing for a clothing store.
His wife, Michelle, had just left the store.
“We’re in Mexico now, I was just about to get out of the car and I just got in my truck, and I looked out my window and it was like, ‘Oh my god, it’s just gone,'” Joe said.
She didn’t realize what was happening until she got home and called her husband, who then called a friend.
He pulled the couple out of their car and they went to a local hospital, where they called their doctor.
The couple was able to make it back home, but they were still stuck in the snow.
The doctor told them they had to be rescued by helicopter.
“When they saw us, they said, ‘Hey, we’re going to get you out of here, we’ll take care of you,'” Joe told DeGeneers.
After that, they started searching the area for help.
Joe said he and Michelle spent the day at a Walmart to buy clothes, and they were able to locate the hospital in Mexico.
They then went to the nearest store and bought supplies for the helicopter.
Michelle said they didn’t even realize what they were doing was dangerous until the next day, when they saw their rescue helicopter.
They also said they thought the storm was going to be over soon, but that wasn’t the case.
The helicopter was a big help, and the couple has been getting lots of support from the public.
They are now able to get to work as normal.
The duo was rescued by an off-duty police officer who was driving down the highway with a tow truck, but he couldn’t get a good shot of the couple because they were so far away.
The officer called 911, but was told to stay out of it.
He and his friends went over to the couple’s house and helped them get in and out.
“It’s been a long road, but we’re doing OK,” Michelle said.
