New Ipswich Ice Storm - Neighbors Helping (Part 1)

I'd like to publically thank Lars and Amy Somero for providing free showers and laundry services to the citizens of New Ipswich at a Redfield Homes model home.

I've heard many stories about folks hooking up generators, offering hot showers, cooking meals and checking up on each other. It's encouraging news.

Unfortuately there have been some robberies and scam artists claiming to expedite power restoration, and door to door generator salesmen selling $800 generators at a huge markup.

It seems that any disaster brings out the best and worse of human behavior. I know that I am thanking the power crews. I hope they will be able to return to their families by Christmas. They are here from all over the east coast and Canada.
