Good people live here too

To the editor:

Lately there has been news of an individual in New Ulm getting hate mail. It is disheartening to hear such things happening here. However, there are also a lot of very good-hearted people in New Ulm. On my way home from work tonight I slowed down for a corner due to blowing snow and poor visibility, and managed to get hung up on a snow drift. It was 20 degrees below zero, with wind chill of minus 53. I tried rocking the car, with no luck.

Within minutes one of residents on Oakwood Ave. was there asking if I needed help. Shortly after others were there offering help. We soon had three shovels and four guys other than myself. It took a while and my feet and ears were beyond cold, but they didn’t give up until they got the car out.

Thank you to all that helped in frigid weather, and thank you for reminding me of all the good people of New Ulm who offer to help, even at minus 53 degrees wind chill.
