For more than a decade after they moved into their house in Neenah, Wisconsin, the Zwick family knew they had a Cold War bunker in their backyard.
It was not until 2010 that anyone thought to open the heavy steel hatch, climb down the ladder and explore the 8-foot-by-10-foot chamber that the home's previous owner had built to protect his family from a nuclear attack.
Floating in five feet of water that had seemed into the bunker were sealed U.S. Army boxed packed with all of the supplies a family would need to survive two weeks underground.
That's pretty cool. Like a time capsule in their backyard.
How do you live in a home for 10 years and know that there is a fallout shelter in the back yard and never check it out?
Man..how'd you like to be holed up with the wife and kids in an 8 x10 box for a few months. I'd rather just catch the f$%%ing bomb.
