Snowstorm is no match for Redfield pharmacist and tractor

News

REDFIELD, S.D. (KELO)– Not everything comes to a complete stop during a blizzard. 

People still need their medication. 

When Redfield Pharmacist Hugh Mack saw all the snow Thursday, he knew no ordinary vehicle would do. 

“It was snowing at the time. We maybe had a foot to a foot and a half,” Randall Pharmacy Co-Owner Hugh Mack said. 

Hugh Mack drove his loader tractor to work. 

He ended up using the farm equipment to make some medication deliveries. 

“I got a call from the nursing home so I delivered one there and I delivered one to another patient too,” Mack said. 

The story has taken off online with thousands of shares on our KELOLAND Facebook page. 

But he doesn’t consider himself special for these kind deeds. 

“I don’t know of any small town pharmacists that probably don’t do the same things,” Mack said. 

Because when people are counting on you, not even a snow storm can stand in the way. 

“They’ve been supporting us for years. We need to be able to help them out when they need it,” Mack said.
