Rick Benn, who had been shepherding his load of ice from Indianapolis for two weeks, said he’s worked disaster relief before but this was the worst. He couldn’t understand why he trucked a load of ice all the way to the Deep South, waited for a week in Alabama, then hauled it to Northern New England.
“It’s the government. What do you expect?” he said.
Still, he’s being paid $800 a day. He would normally spend almost half that money on fuel but when he’s waiting instead of hauling, his operating expenses are minimal.
Reeves, who is from New York, said he’s gone from feeling upbeat about his disaster work, to feeling guilty.
“I thought I was doing some real good,” he said.
