Nebraska is currently facing $1.3 billion in flood damage following the massive "bomb cyclone" that swept through the midwest last week. However, two local men claim to have received a "gift from the heavens" amidst the devastation. After devoting their day to storm cleanup and wading through chest-high waters, Kyle Simpson and Gayland Stouffer stumbled upon a mysterious fridge full of beer.

“[Stouffer] says, ‘Hey, this is a refrigerator.’ And he opens it up and says, ‘It’s full of beer," Simpson recounted to the Lincoln Journal Star, admitting he was skeptical at first. The mini fridge was indeed packed with an unharmed stock of ice cold Busch and Bud Light. "It was a gift sent from the heavens, and we were happy to see it," he continued. "But we hoped the people who lost the fridge were OK, we hoped their property was OK."

After the discovery was posted to Facebook March 18, the original owner spoke up. Turns out, the fridge-which was a family treasure of sorts-travelled nearly four miles. It remains one of the few personal items the Healy's have recovered from the storm that claimed their cabin. The appliance had also survived a 2007 fire that had destroyed their previous home.

Though Simpson and Stouffer clearly cracked open a few cold ones, they've promised to return the fridge once road conditions have improved. Maybe they'll even restock it?
