NWE worker helps dig out stranded motorists
This a letter of thanks to the young man in the NorthWestern Energy truck who helped my wife and I last Friday on I-90 between Drummond and Deer Lodge.
We had lost traction on a slick section of road, spun 360 degrees and came to rest in deep snow well off the berm of the highway. A highway patrolman came on the scene and attempted to slow traffic while the young man and I wrestled with tire chains, fruitless towing efforts, and finally successful winching over about an hour and a half.
With my vehicle back on the roadway, the young man was stowing gear back in his truck. Shivering from the cold and the incessant wind, I opened his passenger door and asked for an address so we could send proper payment for his deeply appreciated time and effort. He smiled and said, “No way, I don’t have a card and I will not take your money.”
Pressed further, he wrote down his name on a yellow sticky note. I closed the door and he drove off. Cory Donahue, thank you and your NorthWestern Energy truck!
