PORTLAND, Maine — Hundreds of truckloads of ice destined for the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast are being diverted to Portland and other cities for storage.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it has more ice than it can use, so it wants to put the ice into storage for use in a future emergency. Critics, however, said that paying truck drivers $800 a day to haul the ice across the country makes no sense.
I’m guessing, worst case, there are probably a few freezers along the way?
