“And I got up. I remember it was about 20 degrees below outside. And I walked outside just in my shirt on, just to wake up. And when I came back in, everybody was just kind of coming up.
“It was weird; it was like a Fellini thing. It was so strange that I really did believe that everybody was dead, and I was the only one that survived it.”
