Minnesota nurse snowshoes 2.5 hours to work after blizzard

A nurse snowshoed two and a half hours to work at Duluth, Minn.-based St. Luke's following a Nov. 30 blizzard that brought nearly two feet of snow, according to ABC affiliate WDIO.

Emily Ceglar, RN, told WDIO snowshoeing was safer than driving herself to work, or calling a taxi or Uber. The nurse said she wouldn't want her loved ones to be at an understaffed hospital, so it was only right that she trek through the snow to work.

"I just kind of took it all in, meditated in the quiet, and the trees look really pretty at least," Ms. Ceglar told WDIO. "I only wiped out one time."
