    A Chicago church group returing from a trip to Baltimore got caught in a snowstorm of biblical proportions.

    Thankfully some good samaritans were around to lend a helping hand and rescue them from thier broken bus.

    "It started getting dark, no heat or whatever," Bishop Harry Wilson Jr. of Deliverance Temple told NBC25 in Maryland. 

    About 40 members of Wilson's parish were stranded when road conditions affected their bus, and they had to stop.

    "Thanks be to God, the Hancock Volunteer Fire Department came and brought 40 of us to the fire station,"   Wilson said. "They were in the midst of getting ready to have their Super Bowl party, so they had Super Bowl party with us."

    Hancock Fire Company Chief Greg Yost group's bus broke down on Interstate 70 near Hancock.

    Yost says rescue workers brought the travelers to the fire hall for a feast of steak, shrimp, hamburgers, hot dogs, baked potatoes, spaghetti and chili.

    He says they watched most of the Super Bowl before hitting the road in their repaired vehicle.
