snow survivor faces long road to recovery

Donna Molnar's husband said Tuesday "God reached down and cradled" his wife -- helping her survive 72 hours underneath several metres of snow in sub-zero southern Ontario weather.

Donna Molnar, 55, was reported missing Friday night, when her husband called police to say she hadn't returned from Christmas shopping. Her abandoned vehicle was found Saturday on the crest of a hill in a rural part of Hamilton.

Search crews braved howling, 80-kilometre-an-hour winds, snow flurries and frigid temperatures throughout the weekend, but didn't find her until Monday at 12:30 p.m. when a rescue dog dog made a bee-line for a mound of snow about 200 metres from her vehicle.

Staff Sgt. Mark Cox said all that was visible was an eye, looking up from a small hole.


I heard she may have to have amputation of hands or feet because of frostbite. Sad

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
