No help for a constant stream of stranded people

But for many, there was no gas, ice, water, or help. Many were stranded overnight the night of the storm and many for several days after could not travel on through on their way to work at the PGA or attend or visit their relatives, or whatever it was. The PGA traffic only added to the problems in an area of I-64 that had no resources to help. Jim, you didn't think about that when you made the decision to go on with the tournament, did you? People were backed up for miles to get gas at the one station at Dawson that had (after a couple of days) a generator to pump gas. They had no water or ice for people and no bathroom facilities. These businesses were slammed and overwhelmed, even threatened by panicked travelers. And were left to their own devices to cope with the flood of helpless people.

In Big Jim's world everything is just hunky dorey. He's got his tournament up and running and the TV and papers are fawning over him. He played golf with Tiger woods the other day. He's heard something about people wanting ice? He doesn't quite understand why, but he'll have them leave a few buckets worth on the parking lot at the fairgrounds for you to pick up after the concert if you like.
