Ice traps some in Fayetteville

Icy conditions in Fayetteville caused one family to be stuck inside their home with little food.With no way to get out, Clayton Kaminska sent ABC11 Eyewitness News a desperate e-mail saying he was iced in and running out of food for his kids and disabled wife.

"You know, I got two children and I'm looking at the groceries they're dwindling," Kaminska said. "We went out before the storm because everybody said be prepared. So we went out and bought about $65 worth of groceries. It's all gone."

He thought he bought enough food, he said thinking the storm would be gone in a couple of days.

He said he had no idea how much the ice would linger and it's still not gone. Kaminska says he even took a couple of spills down the driveway.

"Ah, it's solid ice, you can't even move," he said. "I'm wearing sneakers and I was coming down the hill with you and I couldn't make it. I fell right down. And my steps are solid ice. And I'm going to get out here and try to clean them today."

Fortunately, his prayers were answered with bags of food from a good Samaritan.
