Near Crystal Lake Woman spends 22 hours in stalled auto By CHARLES W WALK North Ntwv Dirtctor CRYSTAL LAKE If I had some blankets I could have stayed another night That was the reaction Jean McMahon 39 after spend ing nearly 22 hours snowbound in a stalled car between Forest City and her farm home near here Wednesday and Thursday Despite being without heat for all but the first hour of her or deal Miss McMahon said Fri day she couldnt honestly say I was scared Looking back at it I guess I wasnt smart enough to be scared Miss McMahon Wednesday about pm left her job in a bank at Forest City and head ed home Highway 69 south out of For est City was real Miss McMahon recalled Even when I turned west on the blacktop to Crystal Lake things still were okay The first trouble she encoun tered Miss McMahon added was about two miles west on the blacktop Blowing snow was hampering visibility and there was some drifting After con tinuing another mile on the blacktop she turned north on a gravel road which would have taken her to her home about three miles away By this time the visibility was so bad that the only way I could tell 1 was still on the road was by seeing the drifts on either side of the car Miss McMahon continued About a mile along the gravel road she got stuck in a drift and had to shovel her way out About 100 yards farther on she came upon another large drift and de cided to back up and take a run at it While backing up Un real wheels of her car slid partly into the ditch and the car became stuck After seeing that I was stuck good this time I just got back into the car and sat she added I realized there was no point in getting out and walking be cause I didnt think I could make it back the half mile to the nearest farm house I looked at my watch when I got back into the car and it was just Realizing that she might be snowbound for quite awhile Miss McMahon decided to ration her gas supply She ran the car until about pm and then shut it off I waswet from shoveling she recalls so I changed into some wool slacks and a sweat er I had in the car After about an hour however the car start ed to get cold again so she tried to start it It would not start From then on I just sat and waited I didnt sleep but I might have dozed a couple of times I know the time went awfully slow Id look at my watch then wait what seemed to be an hour and look again only about 10 minutes would have gone by Help in the form of a snow plow and snowbuggy from the Hancock County Highway Coin mission garage arrived about pm Thursday I was a little surprised to see the men because I didnt know if anyone knew I was missing she continued The crew took Miss McMahon to the Vincent Kirshbaum farm home about a half mile away where she spent Thursday night Looking back at the experi ence Miss McMahon believes the cold was the worst I never got hungry and I came out of it in good shape not even a case of the sniffles What was Miss McMahon try ing to do Friday Well I want to
