Neighbors Help Neighbors Dig Out from Heavy Snow

Posted: Updated:

As residents continue to shovel out from the snowy mess, you can see more than piles of snow in many neighborhoods.

Many people seem to help each other out--without a second thought to the extra work.

Whether you're waiting for the city plow to clear your road, or have to move the snow from a blocked driveway, cleaning up from this major snowstorm is taking some effort.

Family visiting from the East Coast give up their spring break to help dig out.

"The first day I had here was fine I was riding my bike around and then this happened, with all the crazy snow." says Ryan Kaplan/10-year-old.

"A lot of people are working and we're home today, somebody has to do it." says Linda Johnson Kaplan.

Although it wasn't our intention, we stumbled upon an almost pay it forward moment--in this neighborhood.

First, we were talking with the family helping dig out the area in front of a complex's mailbox.

Then a man showed up--to help speed up the process with his skid steer loader.

"Well I just thought I'd push it away I guess, looked like they needed a little hand I guess." says Barry Rader, Classic Concrete owner.

Then a woman down the street asked if they could help her move her truck.

After some shoveling, sanding and pushing--we all finally got the truck on its way.

Showing that even in a white, snowy mess, some people will show their true colors.

"Just help where it's needed that's all!" says Don Johnson, lives in South Bismarck.

If that license plate found buried in the snow, looks familiar to you, it is at the corner of Easy Street and Westwood in South Bismarck.

The Johnson family left it displayed in a tree, so the owner could find it more easily.
