To the Editor,
This is open letter to the great bunch of workers at Pike Electric Company. I live in Madisonville, Ky., which is in the far western part of the state. Our area was hit hard by an ice-storm of unprecedented magnitude on Jan. 27.
The electric cooperative (here) was, of course, overwhelmed and unfortunately not prepared for the devastation. My wife and I saw the big utility trucks in our area just today and as we passed by the workers we did so slowly as to insure they saw our thumbs-up gestures. Just our little way of saying, Thank You, for a job well done!
Even as of this writing, I noticed a large group of Pike Trucks at a local restaurant here and I hoped they were getting back out in the low 30s weather today as they continue in the restoration process.
God Bless you each and every one!
Jerry and Norma Frazier
