Stranded traveller appreciates help

No one likes to have their vehicle break down on the highway

Editor, The Times:

No one likes to have their vehicle break down on the highway, but recently when I had that unfortunate experience, my situation was wonderfully enhanced by the good people of Clearwater.

This went from the lady at the Strawberry Moose Snackery, who told me where the parts stores were and provided me with hot coffee, to the folks at Aspen Auto Parts and Fleetwood Auto, who each delivered alternators to me until I had the right one, and the people at TNT Transmission and Automotive, who charged up my battery for free while I worked on my truck.

I applaud your community and in particular these people who generously went out of their way to help me get back on the road.

Even the snow plow operator that was clearing the parking lot, stopped to offer help.

Thanks to all of you; it’s you that makes the community what it is.

Have a Merry Christmas.
