In the meantime, Sister Margaret Ann, and those like her, will continue to do the Lord's work.

"There was a need, I had the means, so I wanted to help out", Sister Margaret Ann told Fox 31 Denver on Tuesday evening.

Sister Margaret Ann, wearing her nun's habit, was caught on camera using the heavy equipment to help clear a tree toppled by the ferocious storm. "That's what we do", she said.
