Carl Smith: An app and a trash bag
"I tried a tarp but the wind was so bad," he said. "It took all night to get a period of time that was dry enough. The work took 2 to 3 hours. I finally used a trash bag to cover the site and worked inside of it. We have to improvise a lot during times like this."
The first responders were grateful. "They were super nice and even fed me," he said.
As Carl tried to head home, he found the main highway was washed out and the nearby roads were in flooded swamps. He used up most of his gas trying to find a way out, and ultimately had to radio for help. He's now home safe and sound.
Carl seemed unfazed. "I'm just doing my job," he said.
