I remember back in '74 there was a sleet storm in Fort Lee, VA. They closed the Army base, no one could leave by car or on foot. Me and some WI and MN buddies and a few others were stopped as we were leaving the base with the big HALT, NO ONE LEAVES THE BASE, TOO DANGEROUS, from the guy on guard duty! I responded with, 'look the other way most of us are from MN and WI'. He didn't say a word, just turned around and we walked down to the bar watching the chaos at every intersection, wasn't pretty!!
