Some people still had to work on Sunday, the day after a November blizzard dumped close to two feet of snow in areas across the Northland. One nurse walked two and a half hours in snowshoes to get to St. Luke's because of the road conditions.

Rather than getting a taxi or an Uber, Emily Ceglar snowshoed. Ceglar said it was important for her to make it to work not only on time, but early enough to relieve her coworkers of 16-hour long shifts.

"I just kind of took it all in, meditated in the quiet, and the trees look really pretty at least. I only wiped out one time. Otherwise I was fine," said Ceglar.

She said if it wasn't safe for her to drive, it wouldn't be safe for a taxi or Uber driver to drive either, so she says this was a safer option.

Ceglar also said she wouldn't want a hospital to be understaffed if her loved ones were there, so she said it was only right that she make the trek.
