A note of thanks to the kind people of Worthington. Your area was hit with a terrible winter storm (in the springtime!). There was tremendous damage to the structures supporting your electrical service resulting in widespread outages.


I am writing because my husband is one of the linemen who have been working long and hard to get the electricity turned back on. This morning, I spoke with him and he told me stories of how kind the citizens have been to him and his crew. People are rolling down their windows to say thanks, and others are keeping the crews happy with cookies and other goodies.


I thank you all for your kindness. The linemen thank you all, as well. They are working hard and appreciate your patience and your kindness. These men are dads and husbands and are away from their own families, so your acts of appreciation really mean so much. Thank you.
